DO OR DIE is an action sports movie that integrates multiple storylines amid the hoopla of a small college's attempt to make a Cinderella like March-Madness run through the NCAA basketball tournament. GRAHAM GRANGER was once a star at Chicago Southern before an on-court humiliation drove him from the game. Now the down ‘n out Chicago cop is forced to return to his alma mater to investigate allegations of point shaving and improprieties. He must confront his fractured past to save himself, a family in crisis, and the very integrity of the once-beloved game that has since betrayed him.

The current Buffalo basketball team is led by a pair of brothers; Andre Royal is a senior carrying a load of emotional baggage down a dead-end road, Winston Royal is a can't-miss superstar with a brilliant pro career ahead. The story's currently set mostly in Chicago, and various others cities in the great Midwest although the locale can change to meet various tax and subsidiary requirements. It's best described as a modern day, college basketball cautionary tale, reminiscent of HOOSIERS.



FIRE BAY follows the political & military power plays leading up to a shattering battle – the Bay of Pigs. The story moves between the planning in Washington (John Kennedy's White House & the CIA Headquarters), to the recruitment of a secret army (the streets of Miami), to this Brigade's ferocious, heroic combat actions on the bloody beaches of Cuba.

Colonel Hale is ordered by the CIA's shining star, Bissell, to Miami to recruit a fighting force to overthrow Fidel Castro. Needing a Field Surgeon most of all, Hale agrees to Ortega's demand that his estranged son, Raffi, be his Second. But Raffi blames Ortega killing his mother and hates his father. Over the course of their training, Hale, Ortega, Raffi and the other Recruits become galvanized.

When their freighter is sunk in the Bay of Pigs, and Kennedy reneges on his promise of air cover, our characters engage in firefights with Castro's aircraft, PT Boats and the massive Militia force that is hunting our heroes down. Only a handful of the men Hale recruited survive, due to the selfless actions of Ortega whose last words to his son are “Give your child something you never had. A father.”

FIRE BAY is at once a geo-political thriller, a blistering action and a life-affirming tribute to the humanity and bravery of those who put their lives on the battle lines for freedom.

Randall Fried is set to direct; veteran casting director Michael Fenton is on board; offers pending to A-level cast; and Rowland Perkins , CAA Founder, is executive producer.



A behind the scenes expedition that takes you inside the world of pit trading--a world so exhilarating, manic and addictive that it actually makes Wall Street look tame. For the adrenaline junkies that sweat it out in the pits, fortunes can be made in a matter of minutes--or lost just as quickly. With the stakes so high, tensions run even higher and lead to every vice imaginable, keeping our characters on a precarious edge that's as unpredictable as the market itself. We follow our cast of fearless traders and brokers from the trading pits where they literally fight for trades, to the frat-like upper office where the pranks, girls and games bring uncensored hilarity, to their nights on the town where they troll the city's hot spots like Roman Senators, leaving a trail of money in their wake. Created by a savvy veteran of the pit wars, The Exchange is gritty, poignant, and real, giving the viewer an unprecedented look behind the curtain of an almost mythical world that is truly stranger than fiction. Are you ready to become a member of The Exchange?
