Would you give up everything you know to find paradise? That’s the question facing movie producer, Ted LaSalle. After a string of personal tragedies, Ted decides to leave it all behind and purchase his own island off the Philippine coast to escape from the evil and violence in the world around him. With technology as his only companion, will Ted find what he’s looking for, or will his past follow him to paradise? The Island of Ted is an inspirational and epic love story that will have you laughing through tears as you take a journey of adventure, tragedy and romance. Written by Nashville-based screenwriter, Jason Cunningham, The Island of Ted was a top 20 finalist in the Final Draft “Big Break” competition, beating out thousands of entries. At the behest of family and friends, Jason turned his screenplay into a novel in order to share the story of one man’s quest to find peace in a troubled world.
