'Wrap Pack' 1-3-5 - two males, one female (Jack, Colin, Olivia)

Genre: Thriller with double-crossing and adventure, set in Canterbury of today. This is also entertaining and fast moving.

Jack - number three in the company, funny, a flawed hero, early 20s, street-wise, but not as clever and experienced and sophisticated as he thinks he is. He is constantly deflated in his chat-up lines.

Colin - number two in company, good friends with Jack, though rivalry especially over dating women. Colin is a computer geek.

Olivia - boss of a film locations-finding company - American - early 20s, very determined. (Make sure your actor does the American accent.)

Back story - these are scenes from the first episode of the soap. The three work for a location-finding film company, and they get caught up in the type of plot of the film they are working in pre-production for. This adventure turns out to be about the central prop of the film - the CHALICE OF THE BLACK PRINCE. The Black Prince is buried in Canterbury Cathedral. Jack and Colin dig into the tomb and discover the real treasure to replace the lost prop! The young boss Olivia catches up with them and gets involved.
