"One Last Chance" - Series Pitch
I'm here to pitch a series :P It's titled One Last Chance and it's kind of based off of Ghost Whisperer starring Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Victor Coleman may look like a normal 35 year-old man, but there's something different about him- ever since he was a young boy, he's had the ability to see and talk to ghosts. He keeps his ability a secret, but soon realizes that the ghosts all need something. After someone dies, they have a week before they have to leave the Earth. Victor decides that he wants to help them finish what they started while they were alive before their time is up. However, not all ghosts are very cooperative, and it's not easy for him to keep his gift a secret.
- Victor Coleman: Victor is a 35 year-old man with the special ability to talk to ghosts. He tries to keep his ability a secret while still helping ghosts resolve their lives before they have to leave a week after their death.
- John Coleman: Victor's 18 year-old nephew. His parents are constantly arguing and he stays with his uncle regularly as a result. He finds out about Victor's ability in the pilot and decides to help him, claiming that he is his "handsome teenage sidekick".
- Lisa Martin: Victor's 34 year-old coworker. Lisa is beautiful and the subject of Victor's affections, but she's rather oblivious. Nonetheless, she cares about Victor and is concerned when he starts acting weird and talking to himself.
- Thomas James: John's best friend. Despite John's pleading, Victor refuses to let him tell Thomas that Victor can talk to ghosts. Thomas is a bit of a slacker and isn't planning on attending college.
There are some other characters, too, like John's parents (Victor's brother and his wife) and Victor's boss, and the ghost of the day, but they're recurring/guest stars.
