A prickly tween genius runs her own detective agency with the aid of her best friend and sidekick. Encyclopedia Brown meets House.
The Ardenworth Files is an extremely well-written TV pilot focusing on a thirteen year-old child prodigy who is running her own detective agency. It perfectly combines the teen world with noir detective undertones and storylines and in doing so creates something fresh and interesting. The character work is brilliant, especially the dynamic between our main character and her supporting cast. This is exemplified in the superb dialogue that manages to capture the voice of a teenager who is smarter than most adults, but who still speaks like a teenager. There is most certainly a place in the market for such a story with Veronica Mars-like investigations each week combined with Simpsons-level humor. The script is a highly-entertaining read and would be equally fun on screen. A scrupulous producer would do well to pick it up, and any agents looking for a talented TV writer would be wise to consider this fine writing sample.
