TWO SHOT:   MALE LEAD (TOMMY) AND FEMALE LEAD (TONYA)

                                     TONYA
            Welcome to KIDS AND TEENS NEWS, my name is Tonya and
            we have several top stories for you today. First off, Vice
            President Biden has just arrived today in London for a security
            meeting with England’s Prime Minister and will return later
            this week. His trip is focusing on air travel and airport security.
            Let’s go now to our Kids and Teens News correspondent at LAX
            to get a briefing on how any changes may affect our travel.

OFFICER ED BROWN

                                      LILY
            Thank you Tonya. I am here with Security Officer Ed Brown
            and he is nice enough to answer a few questions for me. Officer
            Brown, do you have some tips for travelers who have young
            kids and teens with them that may help out when going to
            security and checkpoints?

                        SECURITY OFFICER ED BROWN
            I sure do Lily. It is always good to limit the amount of carry-on
            items to make security smoother. I also suggest that you
            always wear flip-flops or slip-ons when you go through airport
            security to make removing your shoes a lot easier. When you

                                                                                  1

            dress, try to not wear any large metal buckles or extra metal
            jewelry to cause any further delay.

                                      LILY
            Thank you so much Officer Brown, those are great tips and
            when parents are traveling with kids and teens, we can use all
            the help streamlining the process. Back to you Tonya!

            Those travel tips are great ones and I will try to remember that
            flip-flop trick next time. Now let’s see what other top stories
            Tommy has for us.

                                     TOMMY
            Well Tonya, my top story is so exciting; in fact, we have a
            bunch of screaming teenagers at a red carpet event in
            Westwood, CA for the premier of the new Hannah Montana
            movie. Here’s a clip of her new film opening this weekend.

            That is going to be one of the biggest box office openings so far
            this year. I can’t wait to see it.


                                 TONYA
            Wow, Tommy, that was exciting!




                                                                                2

                                 TOMMY
            Yep. That’s where we should be right now, but instead let’s
            hear about your next story.


INT. SINGLE SHOT TONYA

                                     TONYA
            OK, so the next story is a really cute one. Today we are going
            to go directly to the LA ZOO and hear from KARLA who is on-
            scene for the birth of a very special little baby named “Zooba”.
            She is a two day old baby elephant who is just figuring out how
            to get along. How about it KARLA, are you there?


EXT.   LA ZOO – KARLA AT ELEPHANT HABITAT AREA



                                     KARLA
            Hi Tonya, I’m loving it out here at the LA ZOO! You have got to
            come see Zooba…she’s sooo cute! There is quite a crowd
            around her right now, so let’s see if we can get any closer to get
            a good look.


EXT.   LA ZOO – KARLA NEXT TO BABY ELEPHANT



                                 KARLA (CONT.)
            This is our little sweetheart Zooba. She is two days old, she
            already weighs 38 pounds and she eats all day long. Her first
            two nights were kind of rocky they said, she didn’t get much
            sleep. The elephant caretakers said that she might have some
            sort of sinus infection that causes her breathing to be tougher
            than normal. They have since given her a few shots and it
            seems to be working just fine. Let’s hope that she gets a really
            good nights sleep tonight. But, Tonya, you really have to see
            this little cutie up close and personal, they are extending the LA
            ZOO hours until 8:00pm all this week if people would like to
            come say “Hi” to Zooba. Now, back to you guys in the studio.

                                    TONYA
            Oh my gosh, I want one! Wouldn’t that be sooo much fun to
            have your very own baby elephant?


                                    TOMMY
            That would be all right, but I don’t know where you’re going to
            put her mommy. That’s going to be a problem. But if any of you
            want to go visit Zooba, you can go to our website
            www.kidsandteensnews.com and print out a discount LA ZOO
            pass to go see Zooba yourself.

                               TOMMY (CONT.)
            Now we have a different type of story that involves your health
            and we have a health specialist on our panel that does a lot of
            online searching for good things for you and I to eat that also
            tastes great. Jimmy?


INT.   SINGLE SHOT OF JIMMY
                                    JIMMY
            That’s right Tommy. It’s getting more and more difficult to
            know what we should eat and what we shouldn’t eat. Our
            parents have to make most of the decisions for us, but we also
            need to educate ourselves on what extra foods are healthy and
            what’s not. I’m sure our parents have the dinners pretty much
            figured out, but what about snacking? I know that in the
            afternoon, I reach for chocolate or candy or something sweet.
            Do you know that the urges for junk food come from our brain,
            and it’s telling us that we need certain good foods at that
            particular time? We think chocolate and caramel, but our brain
            is saying carbohydrates and glucose. So, how do we make both
            happy? Well, the best thing is to always…………………(to be
