The D Train
Dan Landsman is the overly enthusiastic head of his high school reunion committee and also the group's laughing stock. To impress his so-called friends, he vows to convince their most famous former classmate – Oliver Lawless, the star of a national Banana Boat TV commercial – to attend the reunion to increase attendance. Dan travels to Los Angeles and spins a web of lies, igniting an intoxicating excitement for the first time in his humdrum life. In exchange for Oliver's precarious friendship, Dan sacrifices his relationships with his wife, son, and boss, and loses himself in his obsession for approval and recognition.
"We liked the idea of this character who isn't satisfied with his high school experience, who he was in high school, and now 20 years later he's still being haunted by it and desperate to change it. And how far would he go to change it."
