Script Files


Accused of altar boy molestation, transferred from the East coast, 20 years prior, father Quigley, is found dead in his rectory office with a bullet wound to his head and a 38 revolver in his hand. Coroner rules suicide. Bishop Burke feels differently, contacts retired Monsignor, Tim Farley and requests he take over duties as pastor of St. Jude church until a replacement can be found. Burke also orders Farley to speak with the first motorcycle policeman who arrived at Quigley’s rectory office. Afterwards, Farley is invited for coffee with some members of the altar society that meet for breakfast after daily mass, calling themselves the Muffin Club. Eventually, Farley and three widows of the Muffin Club get together to solve the murder of father Quigley. Fun and danger follow them along the way. An exciting trip up the famous Palm Springs, (California) Tramway and many other exterior locations of this well known community in the California desert. * Monsignor Farley (retired) was granted dispensation by the Pope and allowed to marry Dixie because his brother Father Paul, is married and of the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church (Greek Byzantine). MUFFIN CLUB is controversial but not sexually explicit and is lighthearted while exhibiting physical challenges faced by seniors everywhere.
