Bonnie Kaye's guest tonight is Benn Perry, an author, actor, singer, and director. Benn has upped his career by creating a major motion picture titled "PAST DUE!" that will be shot entirely on location in metropolitan Detroit, his proud hometown.  

He hand-picked his partner, and now dear friend, filmmaker Joey Harlow, CEO of Laguna Films, to help him bring his project to life.   Joey is a musical composer, producer and songwriter whose music has been featured on episodes of "So You Think You Can Dance" and "CSI," and many more.  He has released seven full-length albums of original songs on which he is featured primarily as the singer and keyboardist.  Joey will be joining in the conversation, sharing technical insights regarding the film-making process, as well as offering some anecdotes from his myriad of experiences.

"PAST DUE!" includes some well known Hollywood stars, including the iconic Robert Conrad who is the film's Director and a renowned television star of The Wild, Wild West and Ba Ba Black Sheep series.  

 Robert approached Benn with interest in Directing "PAST DUE!" as a result of the "buzz" the script has created in Hollywood.  Benn jumped at the chance to have this living legend commandeer the director's chair of his "baby!"  

The film stars Rudy Youngblood, Eric Roberts and Eliza Roberts. The Producer is the groundbreaking Jackie Kallen, the first woman to train a professional boxer to a World Championship.  She is not only a world-class trainer, she's rapidly moving up the ladder as an elite motion picture producer.
