Before baseball had instant replay, Doug Maguire suffers a hard loss in 2005 as an Anaheim Angels fan. Maguire also shares the same first name as Major League Baseball Umpire Doug Eddings, the home plate umpire who missed an obvious strike 3 call and the ump who wears #88. One bad game sends Maguire on a journey of uncontrollable fail. He encounters die hard Angels fans in Anaheim, an unhelpful desk clerk at a Glendale motel and some neo-Nazi skinhead meth dealers from San Francisco. Now the entire Glendale/Burbank Police and Fire Departments want to know what Doug Maguire is up to after another terrible call has been made - this time to a 9-1-1 Operator.

Writer Biography - Doug Maguire

Doug Maguire was born on April 11th, 1973 in Hyannis, Massachusetts. After dropping out of Wentworth Institute of Technology, where he studied technical writing and electronic engineering, Maguire tried his hand at screenplays and making movies. While enrolled part-time at Emerson College in Boston, Maguire quietly made a name for himself as "the guy who can do it all" - write, direct, produce and edit - and by making it all come together on a shoestring budget. Most everything Maguire learned was picked up by reading indie filmmaking magazines, books by his favorite directors and paying close attention to every frame of his favorite movies, along with listening to the audio commentaries available on laser discs.
