If 'The Cadillac Man' and 'Family Guy' were thrown in a blender, then topped with Unicorn ejaculate... you'd have "Used and Abused"

This edgy comedy focuses on a 2-bit used, sorry... "Pre-Owned", car dealership and all the strange and unusual people who work the lot. While occasionally narrated by a mysterious figure known as 'the Guru', we follow Josh Stone - the new kid on the block - learning every dirty corner of the business, the tactics, the shenanigans, the outright debauchery it takes to make a living selling used cars.

With an ethnically and sexually diverse cast of miscreants - a well-intentioned Asian salesman, a hot, latina Femme Fatale, a rough old Indian bamboozler, a former investment banker with odd sexual proclivities, an ex baseball player - we find ourselves in a variety of wild vignettes, fantasies and vivid scenes that peel back the various cultures and sub-cultures of our society.

Like the Guru says, "There are 11 steps in a car sale. A good salesman learns these steps, then makes them his own... like a renaissance painter, or a bus station prostitute."

But as you'll see, for better or worse, this gang of horrible f'ing creeps are a family.

*There's that moment in your writing career where you realize you'd rather make people laugh than win awards... I'm fairly certain that when I wrote this script, I walked past that imperceptible line. Let's face it, people don't win awards for stuff like this:)
