Blake’s World is the show that will change how America views young African American males, and how they view the world as well. Blake Jenkins is a high school football star and math whiz who earns a full-ride scholarship to play for the prestigious Lake Park University’s football program in Los Angeles, CA, a fictitious college. Often referred to as a young Michael Vick, Blake has the distinction of being the best quarterback from Florida. Blake’s riding high and accustomed to having things go his way.
With a palpable momentum and a “nice ride”, Blake has the ability to charm and get what he wants. He thinks he has it all figured out, but he overlooks one important detail – his sister Jasmine, also a student at Lake Park University. As a third year student, Jasmine is pursuing her degree in Business Management and has a thrilling side pursuit as the cheer captain of the LPU Dragons. Jasmine also has a close alliance with Dr. Heckman, a strong willed funny women, and together they create a plan to keep her brother on track. Not surprisingly, conflict erupts when Blake forms a symbolic friendship with his equally egotistical teammate John Haspen, an All-American, over-privileged frat who has the ambitions of redefining fraternity gaming and rules.
This refreshing and exciting friendship hints of Seth Rogen’s, “The Neighbors” meets “Friday Night Lights” and “Blue Mountain State” with a modern day twist of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. Although viewers may easily relate Blake’s World to these successful projects, “Blake’s World takes cliché to a different level, incorporating present day political issues in a satire portrayal. We have decided to take chances in support of dynamic script writing.
