Joe Campbell Jr.

Joe Campbell Jr. is a father of three adult daughters and lives with his wife on Long Island in New York. With the high demand for IP from Hollywood, Joe took on a new challenge and created a TV pilot, adapted from his unpublished trilogy. Different Wings is ​​​​​​an emotional romance and family drama, with an escapist realism in the vein of This Is Us. Although fictional, Different Wings is inspired by the relationship between Joe's wife Jennifer and her autistic brother Scott, who has the maturity of a six-year-old and is treasured by all who know him.

Great dialogue, relatable characters, struggling with finding their place in a very complex family situation as well as in life.  I enjoyed the attention to detail. Great job.
