Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood (1996) as Production Company
Once in a great while, a movie about America comes along that is so disturbing it makes us care. It makes us think. And it makes tons of money. From Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans, the creators of "In Living Color," comes a motion picture about two brothers trying to make a statement. They''re discovering that justice isn''t poetic. Jungle fever isn''t always pretty. And higher learning can be a total waste of time. It''s a world where family values are still cherished and a steady job is the key to the future. In the tradition of NAKED GUN, AIRPLANE and I''M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA, DON''T BE A MENACE TO SOUTH CENTRAL WHILE DRINKING YOUR JUICE IN THE HOOD is a parody of ''hood movies of the last five years.

Eddie (1996) as Production Company
Manhattan limousine driver Edwina "Eddie" Franklin lives and breathes basketball. Her world revolves around Madison Square Garden, home of her beloved, albeit in last place, New York Knicks. She knows all there is to know about the team. She knows the players. She knows the coaches. She knows every statistic in the book. But what she never could have imagined is that hitting a free throw during a half-time contest would completely change her life. After a one game stint as the team''s honorary coach, Eddie is offered the real head coaching post as part of a publicity stunt engineered by the new Knicks owner, Wild Bill Burgess, a high-profile businessman who would rather "sell the sizzle than the steak" and who sees, in Eddie, a headline-grabbing way to get people into the seats. What he doesn''t see is a genuine motivator who can touch, teach and win.
