Waiting To Kill
Two inept brothers from Texas, come to Los Angels to find their estranged father and inevitably become hitman blah blah blah....
"AL" and "LIL AL" are two brothers from the Texas who grew up in a seemingly normal middle-class conservative household. Unbeknownst to them, their father, JIM JENNINGS is a legendary hitman for the GULF COAST MOB.
The GOLDMAN TRIBE - A criminal organization split up into two sub-families, the GULF COAST MOB (Texas) and the SOUTH BAY MOB (Los Angeles).
Jim has recently been tasked with the murder of the heir to the SOUTH BAY MOB in an act of familial Parricide, he, however, does not follow through with the job because he believes it will lead to a war that will ultimately get himself and all of his family killed. Instead, he turns state's witness for the FBI with the plan to keep his children safe.
Shadow members within the Gulf Coast Mob seek to use the brothers as pawns in a Coup d’etat, with the intention to consolidate both organizations into one unified empire. The two estranged brothers, kidnapped, threatened, and beaten are left with no options but to head to Southern California and find their father or finish his task.
NEEDS TO BE REWRITEN___Waiting to Kill will take place in the back alleys of West LA’s pseudo exceptionalism. From the drug front of a Green Juicery, the scantily clad, sex cult yoga studio, all the way to the Pyramid scheme of Café Gratitude. We will follow the brothers as they leave no crystal unturned in their quest to adjust to Trustafarian logic, pacifist assholes, and the Murders that will pay for it all.
You can’t put a price tag on health…or reason...
ALBERT “AL” JENNINGS
AL – Recently released from jail for laundering money through his small bar in Texas. The middle of nine children, Al grew up never being noticed or considered, which leads him to constantly assert himself and his archaic masculine ideologies. The older of Jennings's sons, he is divorced with a 12-year-old daughter. He is constantly being emasculated by the women in his life. He is convinced that his father is the reason for his family issues. AL reads incessantly and fancies himself an intellectual but he really has no idea what he is talking about.
ALOYSIUS “LIL AL” JENNINGS
LIL AL - professional poker player. Savant. He is the youngest of the nine children, he has always been coddled. LIL AL grew up watching old silver screen movies and listening to soul music. He has never experienced love from those closest to him, making his desire for nostalgia and to be loved heightened. He is very good with numbers as he only sees information. This leads to making misinformed decisions with people as he is constantly regurgitating what he has seen and not what he has felt.
ALEXANDER JAMES "JIM" JENNINGS
JIM- 60's, the bygone father of the Jennings family. Has always had a cavalier attitude. Undereducated, and needing money to support his growing family, he went to work for Nelson Gold as muscle, that ultimately lead to him becoming a contract killer. He doesn’t take out the heir to the Goldman family because he believes it will lead to a war that will ultimately put his family in danger. He goes to the FBI instead to turn states evidence, which he believes is the only way to protect his family. When his sons kill both heirs it creates chaos, leaving JIM helpless, whilst he tries to contain both mobs and the FBI.
ALLISON “ALLEY” JENNINGS - 12 going 30, wise beyond her years. Al's daughter who is the spitting image of him. Smart mouth, independent and eager to follow in her father’s footsteps. She has been relocated to Los Angeles with her mother.
JENNIFER PRICE (JENNINGS) - 30’s, Al's ex-wife (although on paper still married). She has an affinity for white wine and social media. When Al went to prison, she fell for an out of work actor living in Los Angeles, whose glory days are far behind him. She resides in Brentwood and is completely detached from the realities of the world.

RICHARD "CHICKY" LYTHGOWE - 60's, he is The Godfather to the Jennings brothers, and was Jim's best friend. Consiglieri to the Gulf Coast Mob. He is the brothers go between for all the jobs their father left undone. Although he comes across as folksy and kind with the best of intentions for the Jennings Family, we find out in later episodes he is a vicious conniving unfriendly foe, serving the dark interests of a mysterious puppet master pulling the strings from behind the scenes.
SUSAN GOLD - 60’s, Boss to the Gulf Coast Mob, Twin Sister of Jonathan Goldman, exiled from her family’s operation when she was young because she was a woman.

OLIVIA GOLD - 20’s, beautiful, jewish/swiss, Rachel’s identical twin sister. She is the one who has ordered her sister’s husband, Jared Kesh, the heir to the South Bay Mob to be killed, as a first step towards destabilizing the whole The Goldman Family in her efforts to supplant and take control of what she views as her family’s deeply mismanaged empire.
RACHEL (GOLD) KESH – 20’s, beautiful, jewish/swiss, identical twin sister of Olivia. Favorite daughter of Susan Gold. Has been seduced by Jonathan Goldman to marry his illegitimate son in order to provide him with a rightful blood heir.
“SOUTH BAY MOB”
JONATHAN GOLDMAN - 60’s, twin brother to Susan Gold. Unfertile widower. Ruthless leader of the South Bay Mob which has been in his family for several generations. He exiled his own sister from the family after assessing her as a threat to his rise to power, following their father’s death.
JARED KESH - 30’s, young, flashy, good looking husband to Rachel. Raised as a son by Jonathan Goldman to be his heir to the family business. The son of a big-time London Mafia figure who was arrested by the FBI and put in prison where he died at the hands of corrupt Prison Guards. A chip on his shoulder with a rage against the world mentality, he has recently moved the family into dealing international arms.
REMY VINE (40’s) red hair, curly Jew fro, Jonathan’s henchman and most trusted number 2. The most competent member in whole mob. The greatest foe to Olivia.
GRANDMA GOLDMAN (70’s) a happy raciest grandmother in denial that her family is in the mafia.
LOS ANGELES POLICE AND FAMILY
DETECTIVE CHRISTINA MORALES – 30’s, Los Angeles native. Raised by a single father and her six older brothers. The baby of the family and highest ranking Detective in the family. Her tomboyish intellect and attitude are juxtaposed by her gorgeous womanly frame, which caused her trouble navigating the LAPD, until proving herself one of the most capable detectives the department has ever seen. The backbone of her family. And the embodiment of true moral integrity and honest living. A devoted Catholic, her family has been in Los Angeles for over three hundred and fifty years. Lil Al and Detective Morales fall in love.
