Well folks, it’s time. The project Underbelly, the pilot I have worked on for a year and a half is ready to be seen. This was a huge project for me. Not only was I an Executive Producer on it, I did every other thing on the planet you can think of, along with the help of about 100 friends, colleagues, my producing partner, and the extremely talented writer/director.
They say you get to pick two of three. Fast, Good, or Cheap? We chose to do it good and we were able to do for a little less dough than normal. But, it did take some time. Thanks to all who volunteered their time and skill set and those who acted because they believed in the project. Please come out and enjoy it.
Mark your calendars, a screening will be held Friday, May 18th at the MLK Auditorium at the Santa Monica library, 7:30PM sharp. We are premiering at a pretty large auditorium and holds up to 150 people. It’s a free showing so please RSVP because we will fill up.
We’re ecstatic to have landed such great actors who have appeared and are currently starring on network and primetime shows; as well as Hollywood blockbuster films and indies.
