Description
The hilarious true story of a young man's attempt to break into the film industry -- with a new epilogue from the author.

Everett Weinberger has an Ivy League education and an MBA. But what he really wants to do is produce.

He's willing to start at the bottom -- even if it means becoming Alec Baldwin's personal assistant -- but despite tapping all his L.A. connections, he can't seem to land a job. He even blows one interview by forgetting to compliment a studio exec on his car.

When Everett tries to get work as a "power temp", life gets even weirder as he becomes second assistant to everyone from Frank Wells to Leonard Nimoy, trying to cope with the incessant phone calls and invisible protocols that keep getting him fired.

Wannabe is a scathing and laugh-out-loud funny portrait of a world where even the assistants are political barracudas, by a guy with no bridges left to burn. A real-life Swimming with Sharks, it should be required reading on the Hollywood syllabus.

"Plenty of delicious insider dish".
