Script for “Suncoast”, Theo CHEAP inspired by Chinn’s real-life experience growing up in the early 2000s, which her memoir “Acne” also addresses, according to the book. summary. It is the story of a teenager who lives with his “resilient mother” and who has to take his brother to a specialist facility. She befriended an “eccentric activist amid protests over controversial medical cases.”
The Blacklist Diary reads: “An awkward teenager is outcast to adulthood in a hospice setting where her brother (and incidentally Terri Schiavo) is dying.” Terri Schiavo’s case – and the decision to remove someone from life support – is most likely the “controversial medical case” that THR’s description is referring to.
Although it’s not explicitly stated, the title “Suncoast” may refer to where Chinn grew up in Clearwater, Florida, and Los Angeles, as her memoir summary states.
