Happy Valley Clinic preview

Happy Valley Clinic – A doctor uses his shamed past and proven rehabilitation results on celebrity patients to show them the light.

INT. “THE END UP” LOUNGE AND BAR – HOLLYWOOD — NIGHT 1

Blood-red velvet walls and marble floor tiles lead to a panoramic window overlooking the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. It’s dusk outside.

The MOTLEY CRUE song, TNT, blasts out of the sound system.
A DJ spins music from a raised booth above an empty dance
floor.  It’s still early and the torrent of young, sexy things
haven’t begun trickling in yet.

At the other end of the lounge, behind double, swinging doors,
is a smaller, dimmer room…”The Speakeasy”.

2 INT. “THE END UP” SPEAKEASY – HOLLYWOOD — NIGHT 2

Within the speakeasy, lounging in a dark corner, two hot, Hawaiian cocktail waitresses (ANNA MUN and NAKIR) keep company with TOMMY LEE, 47, plastered in tattoos and shit-faced drunk.

Over at at the centerpiece, mahogany bar, SAMMY THE BARTENDER,
dressed in a button-up shirt with a tie, keeps watch while wiping a glass clean.

Tommy throws his head in the air.  He SPITS a spraying shot of whiskey like a blowhole.

TOMMY LEE
Yeah!  This is my fuckin’ song, man!
Anna barely hides a look of disgust as she sets a drink down
on the cocktail table for Tommy.
ANNA
Here you go Tommy, drink up.
TOMMY LEE
(slurring)
You hotties trying to get me drunk?
NAKIR
(giggling)
We’re gonna do way more than that,
baby…
TOMMY LEE
You’re such a slut!  That’s awesome.
Tommy slams back another shot of whiskey as he pulls Anna
close.
Anne glances over at Sammy at the bar – still watching as
Tommy starts to make out with Nakir.

NAKIR
(pulling away for a
second)
You know…
TOMMY LEE
What is it?
NAKIR
I think my mom had a crush on you
back in the day.
TOMMY LEE
You should invite your mom to party.
Tommy starts to grope Anna.  He pulls her down next to him
to make out with her.
TOMMY LEE (CONT’D)
(coming up for air)
Hey, you guys got any blow?
ANNA
Sure baby.  I got some…
Anna reaches into her bra and pulls out a bag of cocaine.
TOMMY LEE
Shit girl, right here?  Won’t you
get fired or–
ANNA
We’re good Tommy boy…just relax…
Anna glances at Sammy over at the bar again.  He nods.  She
bends over and quickly chops a line.
TOMMY LEE
That’s what’s up.  Ride the white
horse.
NAKIR
Go ahead Tommy.
Tommy rolls up a hundred dollar bill and snorts.  He reels
back and gasps.  His eyes go wide.
TOMMY LEE
(tilting his head
back)
Damn that was good shit.
He tries to focus his eyes but can’t keep his head straight.
The room starts to spin.
TOMMY LEE (CONT’D)
What the hell?

3.
Tommy tries to get up, but he stumbles and falls to the
ground.  He knocks over the cocktail table as he struggles
to get up.  Tommy reaches out to Anna and Nakir, but they
just sit and do nothing to help.
TOMMY LEE (CONT’D)
Why aren’t you helping me?
ANNA
We are helping you…
NAKIR
It’s been decided…
Tommy crawls towards the exit.
His vision goes from a foggy perception to a dizzying
darkness.
Sammy continues to watch from the bar, cleaning more glasses.
Anna and Nakir get up and follow Tommy as he continues to
crawl towards the exit.
ROCK MUSIC echoes and fades off into a steady HUM.
Just as Tommy reaches the speakeasy exit, Anna stomps her
foot on his head.
