Trust fund kid, Chas Gaswell, must hold down a job in order to prove to his family he is worthy of their estate. They set him up with a gig running activities at their favorite holiday destination who also happens to be their largest client, an RV campground in the beautiful resort town of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Knowing nothing of the real world work experience, Chas is left to his slacker instincts and the help of an over-aged loser named Biff, with plenty of real world experience and no occupational options left, working by his side to help claim his hard-earned inheritance.
Proposed 3 minute short introducing the series.
Trust fund kid. Has no real work experience or ethic, yet must hold down a job to prove he’s worthy of his family inheritance. His wealthy parents are the Gaswells, live on a natural gas supply in rural Pennsylvania, and supply the gas to the park’s gas station.
Activities associate. He has a good heart but always seems to fail. He’s been working for years to be the Activity Manager and is way too old for this job.
Co-owner. Married to Phil. She wears the pants in the marriage and has no problem taking advantage of her staff.
Co-owner. Married to Ginny. He’s a pushover, French-Canadian, and really just likes to cook up sandwiches in the concession area.
Characters and world are introduced. Chas gets the job, nearly loses it, and all the while Biff sucks until he doesn’t.
A new gas supplier emerges threatening the Gaswells’ livelihood, and in turn, Chas’s inheritance.
The characters. The RV campground is a resort destination where people from all walks of life stay and enjoy the park as well as the surrounding beach community. You have the poorest of the poor mingling with the richest of the rich, and everyone in between. An eclectic mix of recurring characters would make up the staff, while out of town visitors would appear from episode to episode, bringing their own individual flair to shake up the status quo.
The setting. There are lots of little worlds within the park that can lend a setting to interesting scenarios such as the gas station, main office, convenience store, concession area, bar, karaoke, pool, arcade, putt-putt, beach town, etc. creating endless opportunity for a wide range of stories within the overall premise.
The stories. I actually used to work at a place like this when I was younger and have lots of inspiration. Here is the actual resort park: Holiday Trav-L-Park
