With so many platforms out there, today more than ever, Hollywood is in need of content, GOOD content. James formed Undecided Pictures in 2012 and recently optioned a feature film called GOUGE a horror/thriller based off a short story he wrote.
HAVE YOU MET MISS JONES was James' first TV project under his new production company, which he created and developed with his writing partner, James also produced, co-wrote and co-directed the finished TV pilot, which won 11 awards at various festivals around the world. It stars the iconic Patty McCormack, Dot-Marie Jones, James Kyson, character actor Art LaFleur and of course, James Di Giacomo, who plays the title character.
Patty who played Connie, has known James since 2001. James was a huge fan of hers and loved her in the classic film THE BAD SEED, which his writing partner made him watch. James told Patty that one day, he and his writing partner David Mattia would write something for her. And 11 years later we sent her the script for Have You Met Miss Jones -- she replied back to James, saying, "This is fuckin' hilarious," and that she was interested in playing the character role of Connie, Angelina's (James) mother. Patty was nominated for an Academy Award (THE BAD SEED) and has been acting in Hollywood for 65 years.
After filming, Patty sent James a note, telling him this was the most fun she had ever had on a set! James was blown away by Patty's performance and by her comment. James was also humbled by all the people who wanted to be a part of this little dream he had, that started with an idea, that turned into a script, which manifested into a finished TV pilot.
