I came to San Diego State University from Chicago when I was 18. I have family members that are in jail for low-level drug offenses. Never in a million years did I expect to see the kind of drug bust I had seen in the worst neighborhoods of Chicago on campus, but I did. Several fraternities on campus were involved in a drug ring, and one day when I was on my way to class I saw dozens of young white men getting arrested. I knew this was an interesting story that needed to be told. The more I thought about it, I decided I had to tell my truth about college to develop the script. I came to understand that colleges were businesses that employed unfair policies. I reflected with close friends on the trials of Womanhood. I did some research and learned more about the demographics of the US drug trade. I discovered that none of those frat guys involved had been given any jail time. I discussed my findings with an attorney. He informed me that it is standard practice for judges to consider the demonstrated potential of a criminal, and allow that information to significantly impact sentencing. It sounded like “Them that’s got, shall get” to me. “Frat Row” is dramatic series with ironic realism, and a crass and immature sense humor.
