A FEW OF OUR UPCOMING FAVES…


MISS UNIVERSE
(feature / development)

A group of beauty queens find themselves under attack from an alien force during the last night of their pageant.

In her final year, Lauren, a serial beauty pageant contestant, is given one last chance to win when the frontrunner is sent into a coma. Always the runner-up, and never the queen; this could be her year! Well...it was... until stylish newcomer, Meghan, joins the contest and they find the pageant under alien attack. Unable to know who they can trust and terrible at working together, the contestants must form an uneasy alliance. The fight for the crown has become a fight for survival in this female-led The-Thing-meets-Mean-Girls apocalyptic comedy.
