The New Draft is the podcast where two IMDB accredited screenwriters and a man named Chris rewrite films with good ideas or premises but terrible execution to make them actually good. In each weekly episode we take a flawed film and rewrite it so that its true to the general arc of the story and what the auteur behind the project intended but actually works as a film.
