THE Regulars

Screenwriter:  Joshua A. Porter and Michael Fry

Genre:  Comedy​


“Accept friend request”...that won’t work in this unofficial gathering. Social networking hasn't changed the landscape of this place, which clings to the past time of face-to-face time and the lost art form of conversation; and fortunately, for this 50- year-old cigar shop nothing will. Being one of the “Regulars” here is a privilege that is shared among the very few. Andrew, a young father to be, encounters the shop while looking for celebratory cigars to hand out. What he stumbles upon is a brotherhood like no other. Having grown up in a foster home with a single mother and no siblings, he longs to be a part of their brotherhood. The cigar shop owner, Ace, is wise beyond years. He desires nothing more in life than to see what good comes through a cigar and his shop. Andrew eventually looks up to Ace like the father he never knew and the “regulars” like brothers. With a glimpse into each character’s life away from the shop we learn what brings together an old-timer who lived through segregation, a corporate executive, an Italian insurance agent, an ex-Russian mobster, a waiter, and a Reverend. Soon after Andrew becomes one of the “Regulars”, Ace’s wife falls ill, and is forced to permanently close the shop. When the news hits the regulars at the shop, their disappointment is beyond measure. They will do everything possible to keep the doors open, even if they each must take shifts running the shop while still working their normal 9-to-5 jobs. The regulars hold a fundraiser for Ace, and keep the shop open while he’s away, caring for his wife. Things seem to be going smoothly, until they are hit with the news that Ace’s previously unknown financial troubles have put the shop in jeopardy of falling into the hands of a greedy outcast with ill intentions. In an effort to save the shop, Andrew races against time with the help of the regulars and an unlikely friend from Ace’s past.
