W. Timothy Wright on the Opportunity to Pitch His Book, The Valley Boys, as a Film Project

Thirty years ago, The Wright Brothers Band was featured in the movie Overboard starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Directed by Garry Marshall, this classic movie brought some notoriety to the band and continues to provide important connections for band member and author W. Timothy Wright. Through an event honoring Garry Marshall, Wright met a Hollywood insider and sent him his manuscript for his book The Valley Boys.  A compelling book about a team being stronger than individuals, The Valley Boys shares the true story of a special high school basketball team that came together for an unbelievable and historic season in Indiana in 1958. Wright strongly believes this story will translate well to film and continues to network and build connections in Hollywood.
