“We are thrilled our new comedy is going from festivals to living rooms,” said co-creator Rasheed Green. “Audiences can expect a comedy with a unique and humorous perceptive.”

In 2006, Rasheed and Saeed Green – who are also identical twins – contracted a filmmaker they knew to shoot a music video for a recording artist they worked with. Intrigued by the videography, they decided to spice up the look and feel of the video; and from there…they knew. Motivated by this experience, the brothers began formulating movie ideas and scripts, and soon after, decided to invest in digital production equipment and other sophisticated editing software.

Eventually, Their writing and directing skills garnered the attention of Urban Home Entertainment, a locally-based distribution company that boasts titles by worldwide figures such as Tyler Perry, Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, and Ron White to name a few. From there, a partnership was formed. Behind the scenes, the brothers are currently developing several scripts which they cannot wait to share with their viewers; some being surprisingly autonomous from the realms of comedy.

Celebrity photographer and disabled Vietnam veteran Jerome Dorn embodies the very definition of resilience. Born in Philadelphia, the fifth of seven children, Dorn stayed focused throughout his youth, eventually obtaining his degree in Criminal Justice. Dorn has worked with the Philadelphia Police Department, Department of Justice, World Wide Detective Agency, and several other high profile security groups. Throughout his successful career, Dorn wrestled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, an aftereffect of his military service. Battling the pain and debilitating effect of PTSD, Dorn found comfort behind the camera. Photography proved to be not only therapeutic, but life changing as well. Dorn picked up his first camera in 1970 while serving in Vietnam and knew instantly that behind the lens was where he belonged. His shooting style and photographs were special, generating a buzz in the industry. In 1985, he began his career in photojournalism, working in a variety of genres. Dorn’s credentials include fashion, lifestyle photography, photojournalism, and celebrity/red carpet coverage. Working with MSNBC, Jet Magazine, and major publications in Philadelphia and around the country, Dorn has had the honor of capturing the images of hundreds of notable celebrities and politicians including President Barack Obama, George Bush Jr, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Maya Angelou, Jesse Jackson, Rihanna, Snoop Dog, Will Smith, and Tyler Perry. Photography has sent Dorn around the globe, inspiring his passion for civil activism. In 1995, Dorn assembled and led a group of forty-two men to the Million Man March. Together, they spent five days walking from Philadelphia to Washington DC. In his travels, Dorn observed a common theme amongst the youth of the world. Many of the children he encountered seemed lost. Understanding that opportunities for at-risk youth are minimal, Dorn was inspired to make a difference. Established by Dorn in 2011, InDaHouseMedia was built on the idea that there is room in the house for everyone. With InDaHouseMedia, Dorn’s mission is to provide the future generation with positive direction through sports, music, and photography.
