status. In Development
written by. Brandon Lewis, Seckeita Lewis
Meet Brandon, once a kid with big dreams to become a police officer just like his long-lost hero, Officer Kevin Thompson. But now, those dreams are just a memory as he's overweight and working a sedentary desk job with no future. Down on his luck, Brandon spends most nights binging to cope with his depression. It seems life can’t get any worse when his physician, tells him he has Type 2 Diabetes and must lose 100 pounds. Brandon can’t turn to his mother, Angela, a blind diabetic, nor his best friend, JoJo, who doesn’t take Brandon’s health scare seriously. After all, most of his family has diabetes and they are fine. Right? Fortunately, Brandon befriends a newly hired fast food worker, Margaret, a lonesome widow who becomes determined to help him find life outside of the greasy bag.
With the help of Margaret, Brandon’s desire to be a police officer is rekindled and he believes he can do anything. But after a few setbacks, he finds himself going back to the comfort of food. Brandon must make a choice. Will he continue to eat his way into an early grave? Be content with taking his daily cocktail of meds to survive? Or can he really transform his entire life? Brandon goes on a remarkable journey to prove he’s worth it, conquer his demons, and capture his elusive dream of being a police officer, 100 pounds smaller.
100 is inspired by the real life Diabetes diagnosis of the co-writer and actor. This silent killer is an epidemic affecting over 100M people with little discussion. Brandon will live out this vulnerable process and dramatic natural 100 pound weight loss on-screen to inspire, educate and motivate others to take this journey with him, because we are all worth it!
