Tom Romita

Writer. Director. Frustrated Human.

Tom has been successfully (not) writing “unscripted” television shows for twenty years. From the romantic comedy of “Blind Date” and “Matched in Manhattan,” to the family drama of “Wife Swap” and “Shalom in the Home,” to the workplace shenanigans of “Counting Cars” and “New York Ink,” Tom has crafted stories to the delight of millions of viewers over the years. He’s reached a level of success that has allowed him to live in the city he loves, New York, and secure a wife, son and daughter so beautiful, people think he’s adopted. But now, he’s doing it the right way. He’s writing stuff down.

Right here.

A pseudo-autobiographical romantic comedy from the male point of view, “A Dog’s Life” follows Reality TV producer Matt Russo as he clumsily navigates the treacherous waters of life and love, as a divorced 30-something bachelor in New York City.  Along for the journey is his canine best friend, Nick, who Matt has recently reacquired from his ex-wife. When Matt meets the girl of his dreams, who for some reason turns Nick into a bloodthirsty hellhound, Matt must decide between his best friend and his new love. Heartwarming and laugh-out-loud funny, “A Dog’s Life” is a cinematic treat along the lines of the “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and could easily find similar success at the box office.
