Synopsis:THE BROTHERS DOOB follows the journey of Juke, a kid of recently-divorced parents…and his best buddy, Cisco, an orphaned genius living secretly in the elementary school attic…as they decide what to do with The Doob, a device that, well, grants wishes.
Juke and Cisco struggle with acceptable use of The Doob, weighed against their private needs and possible human harm, as they scheme between worlds on a dangerous schedule. Young audiences will enjoy kids setting the pace of the plot, with concerned adults in naïve support when needed—till they finally get what’s going on and participate fully.
Real problems occur when Mel, The Doob’s aggressive owner (leader of a youthful band of official observers from another time/dimension, shows up to claim her device, lost accidentally in Juke's/Cisco’s world). In fact The Doob belongs to her father, and he demands its return.
Additional complications leap on the scene when Juke's errant dad, a paleontologist deep in the publish-or-perish milieu and dragged in by action of The Doob, employs it in a frenzy to seek scientific glory…and chase a real live dinosaur from 120 million years past to the present
Resolution includes some surpringing outcomes. Audiences will delight in Luke's gaining a pleasant detente between his divorced parents And seeing Cisco find the home of his dreams (where he’s needed desperately).
Divorce or abandonment--neither is the end of the world. And family—however defined—is worth the effort.
This story is adapted from the novel, The Brothers Doob. As a family-friendly sci-fi action adventure in the present-day vein of THE NAVIGATOR and EXPLORERS, this is designed as a 4-quad project varied audiences can relate to..
