Ashley Alexander and Jack Utrata (Lullaby, Shakespeare in Quarantine, The Sonnet Project) came away with a huge win at the Austin Comedy Film Festival last night taking the prize of "Best Romantic Comedy Teleplay" for their pilot "11 Blocks To Go."
"11 Blocks To Go" explores the intricacies of a long-term friendship burdened with damaging secrets during a mutual journey to self-betterment. Packed with romance and many of life's most grueling complications, "11 Blocks To Go" offers a glimpse into the vulnerable and beguiling human condition.
Austin is the first nomination and first win for the writer duo for this project.
