PHOENIX - The courtroom drama surrounding the Jodi Arias trial has inspired, of all things, a comedy.

The co-writer, Courtney Pauroso, (@CourtneyPauroso) stars as the suspected murderer and just like the actual trial, the topics are very X-rated.
“You’re saying you shot him in the head and then he got mad and attacked you?” asks the actor playing the prosecutor.
“Yes,” the actress replies in the three-and-a-half minute video, “typically, when people get shot in the head, they do get very angry."
Pauroso told ABC15 via Skype from Los Angeles that she trained in the same school where several “Saturday Night Live” cast members studied.
