I grew up watching telenovelas so I had to do a bilingual remix for Ines' amazing telenovela trailer. I made some small changes to make it even more dramatic because, yes there is always room for more drama. I suggested the idea of the narrator speaking english and the characters spanish with subtitles and Ines liked it so here it goes...

I tried to incorporate all the other themes within this script, School, Fire, The Number 2 (Twins), Your Mom, The Dark, The Future, Guns and of course, Secrets.  The premise is that no matter how exciting a show is, it can’t come close to the excitement of 'Previously…' on that show.  The idea is that the show consists of ‘Previously’ and ‘Next Week’, you don’t really need to watch the current episode at all.


(V/O)


Previously, on Pivot Falls…


INT. RANDOM ROOM. DAY


SANDRA:


You…you got married?


VICTOR:


Don’t pretend you’re happy about it. 


SANDRA:


Believe me, that wasn’t my first reaction…


Cut to:


INT. BEDROOM.NIGHT


PAPA (coughs):


Carlos!  Fetch the priest!


Long close-up on CARLOS looking concerned.  He turns dramatically and exits.


Cut to:


INT. RANDOM ROOM. DAY


SANDRA:


How could you?  She’s my daughter!


VICTOR:


And I’m her teacher!  So what?


Cut to:


INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT


The PRIEST turns from Papa’s bed with a look of extreme concern on his face.  He makes the sign of the cross.


Cut to:


INT. RANDOM ROOM. DAY


Victor and Sandra are kissing.


Cut to:


INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT


The priest is talking to Carlos.


PRIEST:


I cannot break the seal of the confessional.


And yet, this secret is so vile, to hide


it any longer would be a greater evil…


Cut to:


INT. RANDOM ROOM. DAY


Victor and Sandra are lying in post-coital ecstasy with a sheet perfectly preserving their modesty.  Sandra’s daughter (CHASTITY) enters the room.


CHASTITY:


What?..You…HOW COULD YOU? You promised me


we’d spend our future together!  Just the two of us!


VICTOR/SANDRA:


And nothing has changed….


Victor and Sandra look at each other.  They look at Chastity.  She looks from one to the other. Close up after close up of melodramatic expressions.  A shot rings out.


Cut to:


INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT


Carlos is holding a smoking gun.  The priest lies dying on the floor.


PRIEST:


May God have mercy on your soul!


PAPA:


Carlos!  No!  What have you done?  (cough..cough..)


CARLOS:


I have kept your dark secret for you Papa!


But for how much longer I don’t know…


 


(V/O):


Next week, on Pivot Falls


INT. BEDROOM. NIGHT


Papa appears to be dead, lying on his bed.  Carlos throws petrol from a can around the room, and holds up a match.  He starts to cry as he throws the match to start the fire.  He turns to run away through the French doors when he is floored by a punch.  We see who punched him, his identical twin, EDUARDO.


EDUARDO:


Papa!  Papa!  NOOOO!

INT. Living room. Slow zoom into television set, flicking through channels. Commercial, news, lands on soap opera title card.


Fade into a couple lying in bed.


Evelyn: I don't think I've ever felt this way before.


Blake: Neither have I.


Evelyn: I do love you.


Blake: I know.


Evelyn: Truly and deeply, fully and unequivocally, perpetually and...


Blake: Shh..(shoves hand into her face forcefully, runs it down slowly)..that's enough.


Evelyn: Oh Blake, you just have a way with me I guess. But you're my sister's husband, and what about your children? My niece and nephew?


Blake: They're nearly in kindergarten, they can take care of themselves. Now, how bout we get those clothes off..


(Man bursts through door in ragged attire and pith helmet, gun in hand)


Evelyn: Richard!


Richard: I knew it! How could you Evlyn?!


Evelyn: But..


Richard: (Yelling) I go to the Amazonian jungle to study the psychosexual behavior of tinctorious poison dart frogs and come back to this, my wife in bed with her own brother in law!


Evelyn: You do realize you've been locked in the basement high on DMT for the past 3 days, don't you?


Richard: Maybe so, but if the hallucinations have subsided, this don't look good. (Ducks down, starts firing gun across the room) Damn, dirty macaws!


Blake stands up: Okay Rich, let's just be reasonable here.


Richard: Oh I'll show you reasonable, Blake.


(Richard drops gun, punches Blake in the face.)


Evelyn in hysterics: No!


(Punches Blake again)


Evelyn: No!


(Punches Blake again)


Evelyn: Oh God, No!


(Richard keeps pummeling)


Evelyn: Killing him won't bring your father back!


Richard breaks character: What? You can't just segway like that. Who the hell is writing this garbage? I mean seriously, can I talk to a director? I don't even see a director around this...


(cuts abruptly to Richard back in character)


Richard: I suppose it won't. But it might help me forget he's gone for a little while.


Voice: I never left.


(Richard's Father enters through glowing fog.)


(Cut to everyone's shocked faces, dramatic music)


Richard: Father? But how...


Richard's Father: Really, I never left. I moved into a condo on 4th street, fully furnished too. It'd be nice if someone dropped in every now and then, I got free movie channels for a month!


(Blake regains strength, stands)


Richard's Father: Heya, Blake. What happened to you?


Blake: Richard walked in on me in bed with Evelyn.


(Richard's Father punches Blake, Blake falls back down.)


Richard's Father: Who wants fritters? I swung by the bakery on the way here..


(Man bursts through door)


Richard: Who are you?


Mysterious Man, intimidatingly: Who am I? Who am I?! I can't believe what I'm hearing right now. You know it's funny how people change. I thought you were better than this Richard, I really did. Don't play dumb, you know exactly who I am.


(Richard looks confused.)


Mysterious Man: I'm the exterminator, we talked last week. And if someone doesn't show me where this termite problem is....we won't last 50 years in this place.


(dramatic music/ quick zoom in on everyone's faces)


Richard's Father: Let's get this man a flash light..


(Richard, his father and exterminator exit.)


(Evelyn and Blake hold each other and look in the mirror, cheesy outro music plays)


Evelyn: I will always love you, Blake.


Blake: I love you too, baby.


Evelyn: You think they can put your nose back in place?


Blake: I hope so baby, I hope so.


 


(Fade to title card): Next time on Hankerings of Lust...


Richard: I go to the Syrian desert for 7 years for an archaelogical dig and come back to this!


Richard's Father: These fritters are delicious.


Evelyn: A little to the left.


Blake in chair at hospital: OW!
