Authors Anonymous

Synopsis: After a dysfunctional group of unpublished writers with the motto "all for one" accept Hannah Rinaldi (Kaley Cuoco) into their fold, the last thing they expect is her overnight success - but that's exactly what they get. While her career takes off, her eccentric and envious colleagues (Chris Klein, Teri Polo, Dylan Walsh, Dennis Farina and Jonathan Bennett) struggle to find their own paths to publishing fame and fortune. Tensions rise, rivalries form, and hearts are broken. Rejection turns to desperation. Good thing they're only armed with pens...

Action. Sun goes down.

Sun, go down.

I'm sorry.

What's my motivation?

Oh, you good boy.

Oh, you good-

we thought this was going

to be a reality show.

Yeah, like the Kardashians.

I love that show.

You know that I love that show.

I wanted to do a show like that.


A documentary?

What's that?

So... so this is going

to be a documentary

about our writing group?

I thought... I thought it was

gonna be just about us.

Just... I mean not that it

should be just about us,

'cuz you know, there's

more people...

But I mean we are the main

people in the group, honey.

I thought-?

Yeah, I mean I guess this is

going to be like that thing

that we watched on cable

the other night.

The holocaust.

Yeah, the holocaust...

That was-

long, right?

That was very long,

but, I mean...

It was, it was...





Yeah. Heavy.

But, I mean...

We-we love documentaries.

Yeah, we love 'em.

We do.

We love them.

Don't we, Winston?

Does the red light mean

that the camera's on?

So all of this was?



Maria! Can you come

get Winston, please?

Winston, you gotta go.


Hold on. I gotta find Maria.

We can't, we can't.


Well, welcome to

our humble abode.

We moved here a couple

of years ago-



It's kind of a dream,

dream house for us.

You know what, maybe?

We should...

I'm not dressed.

Can we just start over?

Our writing group meets

every Tuesday night.

Mostly at Alan and Colette's.

Sometimes we rotate.

That's me with

the dorky glasses.

I love coming to the group.

Everyone has such

constructive feedback.

Natasha the Russian peasant

dressed oh so slowly.

Consumed totally, completely,

absolutely, definitely

by endless thoughts of Yuri

fondling her breast.

His other hand groping her

womanhood, knowing any second

that she might explode.

Her chastity spraying

across the ceiling

like passionate grafitti.

Natasha never thought such

a moment possible.

Have I satisfied you, Natasha?

Yuri had inquired after

their fourth round of

vodka soaked love making.

Niet. Not yet, Natasha stated.

Exhausted, but greatful.


I have to say I love the

way that Yuri is developing.

You do?

Colette, I love the character.


If you ask John k butzin,

you're gonna have to explain

why this woman would

go awol on her husband.


That's so iffy to me.

I was a little

bothered by that too.

Why would Natasha betray a

reliable, dependable husband

for a washed up young punk?


I've been rewriting and

rewriting and rewriting

and I don't know.

Poodles, it's ok.

It's not ok, Alan. It's not.

I mean I can't find the

motivation for Natasha

like everybody else can.

So I can't, I'm not a writer.

Woah, time out, ok.

The dude is good in bed.

That is all the

motivation she needs.

Listen, I would torpedo

chapter 2, and just pull

all the focus back onto

this nijinski dame.


Yeah. I-I agree with

John and William.

That's exactly what

I was gonna say.

I think just make it more

clear that Natasha wants

to be closer to Yuri.

Writing can be such a solitary

existence, so it's great

to have this outlet where

you can exchange ideas

with other writers.

I mean with this group, it

really is all for one

and one for all.

I work two jobs.

Delivering pizzas

and cleaning carpets.

Which are good jobs for a

writer 'cuz you meet

lots of interesting people.

My whole life I dreamed

about playing football

for the fighting illini.

And uh, I got to go to the

university of Illinois

on a full ride college

football scholarship.
