Sample of script:

Naomi and Nathan are sitting in the TV studio

Nathan: Good evening viewers, this is . . . Newsy Nathan from Channel 12 . . with all the news that is news where you want the news and when the news is still news before it becomes old news!
For sure the last 24 hours has been some exciting around these parts. . .
Here is my partner in news, Naomi, with a recap of some of the happenings we will be reporting on tonight!

Naomi: We for sure do have a full slate of news stories tonight Nathan! . .

Nathan: Well, follow-up from last night, I went out on Jericho Road to check on the traveller who had been beaten up and robbed. Turns out he was befriended by another traveller.

Naomi: Kind of restores your faith in our neighbours doesn’t it Nathan?

Nathan: Well, fact is the fella who did the befriending wasn’t one of our folks . . seems like it was a foreigner, a fella from Samaria.

Naomi, shock: No way! . . Wow! . . Now that is something, what with all that’s going on between our people and the Samaritans.

Nathan: Shocker is that several of our people passed by the injured guy before the Samaritan fella came along. . . . This is some story, for all the details go to the Channel 12 website and click on “Jordan Road Assault”.

Naomi: Next up we have a report on our boat renovation project.

Nathan: Gotta tell you Naomi, the Severe Makeover Carpentry program just keeps getting better and better! . . . I was truly impressed with the makeover job that us guys did on that old boat!

Naomi: Bev the Builder and Bart the Builder hauled that boat out to the Sea of Galilee to check it out.

Nathan: I hear the storm on the sea was something fierce last night, hope that there wasn’t too much damage.

Naomi: Well let’s go on location to the Sea of Galilee . . How are things there Bev, Bart?

Bart: Beautiful day here Naomi, birds singing, water as smooth as glass.

Nathan: What about the effects of last night’s storm? . . . . We hear it was a doozie.

Bev: Well, yes and no Nathan. It started out a real killer wind and rain coming down in buckets. . . But sudden as it started storming it . . . ended.

Nathan: Funny thing with the weather on the Sea of Galilee . . Storm moves in quickly down the valley, then it moves off just as fast.

Bev, uncomfortable: Well, that’s the thing . . . The storm didn’t actually move off . .

Bart: Kinda more like . . stopped . . . in an instant actually.

Naomi: Sounds strange indeed. . . Any theories about what caused the wind and rain to stop?

Bart and Bev exchange uncomfortable glances
