Assault on Precinct 13 (2005) as Executive In Charge Of Production
With only a few hours left in the calendar year, Precinct 13, one of Detroit''s oldest precinct houses, is closing. Amid heavy snowfall and unsafe road conditions, only a few lawmen remain on duty for New Year''s Eve. They are headed by Sergeant Jake Roenick, a good cop wrestling with bad memories of a fatal undercover ''op'' from the previous spring. Roenick and Precinct 13 have both seen better days. Early on December 31st, deep in the city, formidable crime lord Marion Bishop, is cornered by an undercover cop. Their ensuing struggle leaves the cop dead--and Bishop, captured, by the Organized Crime and Racketeering Squad that Marcus Duvall runs. Bishop is handcuffed and herded onto a prison bus with several criminals: junkie Beck, hustler Smiley, and gang member Anna. But the battering snowstorm stops the bus well short of its high-security destination and strands it at the remote Precinct 13-- where, as night falls, the prisoners are temporarily incarcerated. This influx of prisoners irks Roenick, almost as much as visiting police psychologist Alex Sabian does. But Precinct 13''s provocative secretary Iris Ferry and salty veteran cop Jasper "Old School" O''Shea won''t let the increasing workload deter them from celebrating--until two masked gunmen break in and attack the guards from the bus. The gunmen are just barely beaten back, and everyone inside Precinct 13 realizes that more will come--to extract crime lord Bishop, but also armed and ready to shoot anyone and everyone else. The cops, looking to the reluctant Roenick for leadership, and the cons, looking to the steely Bishop for an angle, must join forces to live. Fortifying themselves with minimal weaponry and maximum courage, they will not go gently into the bad night. As they fight to the death, the thin lines between good and bad bleed together.
Door in the Floor, The (2004) as Executive Producer
Set in the beach community of East Hampton, New York, one pivotal summer in the lives of famous children''s books author Ted Cole and his beautiful wife Marion is chronicled. Their once-great marriage has been strained by tragedy. The Coles lovingly parent their surviving child, bright 4-year-old Ruth, who takes everything in stride as perhaps only a child can. But Marion''s equation of love with loss, coupled with Ted''s infidelities, points towards a much-needed change in the relationship. That may come in the form of Eddie O''Hare, the young man Ted hires to work as his summer assistant--and, Ted hopes, the catalyst to invigorate the Coles'' bond of marriage. Eddie idolizes Ted, but Ted''s erratic work habits soon leave Eddie to his own devices. Marion becomes an object of desire for Eddie, rekindling in her some surprising emotions as a mother and as a woman. To Eddie''s surprise and delight, his yearning is potently reciprocated. As he becomes passionately entwined with the seemingly fragile yet increasingly bold Marion, Eddie comes to realize that, similarly, Ted''s surface fecklessness hides something deeper within. As the summer draws to a close, Marion and Ted must make difficult decisions about the future of their family.
