A disgruntled actress attempts to renew her U.S. residency by agreeing to help a politician fabricate a personable image in a reality TV show about the Arizona hierarchy.
What is she disgruntled about. It’s not bad but perhaps there is a better word.
In an attempt to renew her US residency and actress must help a politician frabricate a likable personality on a reality TV show but ……
Give her some obstacles or an challenge to overcome.
I live in the US and I, too, have no idea what the “Arizona hierarchy” refers to. And I also find the premise to be convoluted; the elements — disgruntled… renew residency…. fabricate a personable image… Arizona hierarchy — just don’t cohere into a clear picture of what the plot is about.
“With her visa set to expire, a desperate PR exec is forced by a ruthless congressman to salvage his image, a month before the election, in return for a renewed visa; but problems ensue when she falls for the opposing candidate.”
Okay I used the word ‘visa’ twice, so it is not a perfect attempt but hopefully you can see where I am going with this one.
>>>but problems ensue when she falls for the opposing candidate”
I think that for this to work, her objective goal must directly — not obliquely — clash with her relationship. And I suggest that a goal that would bring her into head on conflict with her love interest is for her to be hired to go negative, to do opposition research and trash her love interest.
It’s also more realistic. Going negative is SOP in politics. Alas, that has been demonstrated over and over to be the most effective way to campaign. It’s not enough to polish one politician’s image; it is also necessary to trash the rival.
Therefore, to maximize conflict and comedy in the situation, the objective goal given to her ought to be to do negative research, to trash the rival.
And since there’s only a month to go until the election, it’s too late for her to credibly fall in love with him. Better that they are already secret lovers when she’s hired.
