Slavery by Another Name: The 10-hour limited series adaptation of the NY Times Best Seller and Pulitzer Prize-winning book.
A limited series based on the true stories told in the nonfiction Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Slavery by Another Name. Forty years after the Civil War, the economically downtrodden South falsely arrests thousands of black men on trumped up charges, forcing them into the newly created “perfect” business model – prison leasing. Reconstruction merely reinvented slavery by another name.
Impasse: Short film inspired by one of my many voyeurism moments. I’m honored to be working with director Michael Bekemeyer and talented actor, Wonder Russell.
When the cold war of love meets the moment of truth.
The Ring: Screenplay and novel.
When a terminally ill mother needs help, she turns to a group of strangers for love and support. Her illness and death brought four women together and not only made them life-long friends, but also changed their destinies. You’ll laugh in the most unexpected of places. Based on a true story.
