Scott Jacobs

After a long career in journalism and documentary production, I've turned to screenwriting, most recently "Sumo Football," a fanciful imagining of an aging NFL lineman who goes to Japan on a junket and returns to lead the Seattle Seahawks to the Superbowl. (Based on a true story.) Also doing a doc on City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco and stage adaptation of Ben Hecht's "Child of the Century."
