Why should I be proud? you ask. Well that's a lovely question. And I shall answer it.
I am proud of it because it's executive produced by Universal Uclick's own Amuse division.
Funny story how this all happened. I was minding my own business at a Patti LaBelle concert when John "Close to Home" McPherson burst through the crowd with a small book in his hand. That book, of course, was Small Apartments.
Small Apartments was an award-winning book by John's assistant on Close to Home -- Chris Millis. When he gave me the book I sat down and read it all in one good read. I found it to be exhilirating and funny and different, like wasabi flavored mayonnaise.
Anyway, one thing led to another and I showed it to some producer friends who had the same idea that I did --- "let's get some curly fries!" But after we finished those, we said, "wouldn't this make a great film?"
