On Top Of The World (Until the Bell Chimes)
David Lamb, author
This version of Scrooge and Belle is familiar, yet unlike any you've come across before. Scrooge, or rather Scrooje, is music's biggest superstar, with one hundred million albums sold, fifteen million devoted YouTube subscribers, two and a half million Facebook likes, and twenty-five million fanatical Twitter followers known as Scroojites. Belle, is a legal shark who gulps down her opposition voraciously and whose beauty and stunning figure causes traffic accidents as she zips through the sidewalks of Manhattan stylishly adorned and taking no prisoners. They never imagined being music's most powerful couple, but that's exactly what happened when Belle fell head over heels and gave the Coke-bottle glasses wearing, plaid and stripe attired, scrawny, biggest nerd on her college campus the ultimate makeover, turning him into a fashion impresario whose style sets trends from Milan to NY Fashion Week and who can be seen courtside at the NBA Finals sporting a perfectly-fitted cashmere suit. Together, along with Scrooje's best friends, Marley and Cratchit, they rise to the top of the music world. Belle becomes the brains behind the scenes and Scrooje becomes the sexy superstar who becomes more and more outrageous. Then Marley dies in a tragic accident, Scrooje exploits his death to sell millions of records, begins cheating his artists and betrays Belle's most intimate trust. In a heart wrenching decision she leaves him. Now, it's been three years since they've spoken, but tonight at Hollywood's biggest red carpet event, Scrooje will have to take the journey of a lifetime to heal from his tragic childhood and feelings of being unworthy of love, relive how he and Belle fell wonderfully in love, remember the people who helped him along the way and melt the ice that has turned his heart cold. Second chances don't often come around but tonight he'll be given something we all wish we had, a chance to make things right. Will he listen to Marley's life and love saving advice? With millions watching, will Scrooje finally set aside his ego, jeopardize his image and ask for Belle's forgiveness? And most important of all will Belle even give Scrooje a chance? Get ready for a page-turning hilarious romantic comedy that's packed with heart and soul in a witty satire about race, class and celebrity worship!
