An original comedy pilot by Stephen Soroka and Will Bozarth for the NYTVF (New York Television Festival).
From Adam is an original, comedic television pilot created by Stephen Soroka and Will Bozarth. It's the story of a guy (Adam*) who moved to New York right after college, leaving his family and friends back in his small hometown. After some sexy (kind of, but we are trying to build interest!) misadventures, Adam goes back home to regroup his thoughts and is surrounded by the people he left for the first time in years.
You know how in any "coming home" story, the main character is usually confronted with the lazy, weird, sad sacks they left behind? From Adam sees the side of the people in the town. Who says the only answer is to move to a big city and party in your 20s? What is so weird about wanting to get married or start a life in the town you grew up in? Plus, it's funny! Think of it as a reverse Garden State divided by Gilmore Girls with just a dash of Gattaca. (A really small dash of Gattaca. You probably wouldn't be able to tell.)
* Yes, the title is a bit of wordplay. As in, his former friends don't "know him from Adam" anymore. But, that's not as lame as HawthoRNe or Hart of Dixie, right?

About Stephen and Will:
Steve and Will are New York based comedians who regularly perform at the Peoples Improv Theater and the Upright Citizens Brigade.
Most recently they were named finalists in the NYTVF's Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition http://www.nytvf.com/2012_comedycentral.html for their show Robot Apocalypse.
Here's a clip from Will's last project. It's about two commercial actors in New York called Sweet Misery (co-created with Nate Williams). Sweet Misery was accepted into last years New York Television Festival (NYTVF). Will has lost a lot of weight since then.
Here is the first episode of a product placement web series Steve recently made (with Chris Roberti). It's called Branded and was screened as part of Channel 101.
And here is a clip of Steve in BoF (best of friends), a two person sketch group with Mamrie Hart.
Finally, here's Will's production reel. Snazzy!
