Emergency Call

Emergency Call was an idea pitched to me by Megan Rosati. Megan was inspired by an article about a 911 operator discovering her daughter was in a car accident. I was instantly intrigued, and Megan only had to crank out two or three drafts before we had a solid script. During our temp edits, I plugged in Blondie's "Call Me". Too bad I couldn't get the rights for it. It fits perfectly, hahaha.
