I am pleased to announce that Producer Steve Roeder has optioned my epic gangster/baseball drama “The Negro League”. I developed the logline and synopsis last month and Steve immediately pitched the idea to the History Channel. They passed on the concept, saying it sounded “very classy” but were looking for something more “badass”. However, Tyler Perry Productions expressed an interest in reading and possibly developing this story. Over a ten day period, sitting down at the laptop for long stretches of work, I wrote a first draft that Steve sent over to TPP today. Please stay tuned for further developments.
