A captivating statesman from America's past takes a modern family-of-four on a series of wild adventures. With a spicy mix of humor, magic and logic, he opens their eyes to the origins and importance of the United States Constitution, the degree to which it is under attack and what can be done to save it. Key aspects of the Constitution are clearly outlined and important Amendment, such as those guaranteeing freedom of religion and speech, the right to bear arms, warrants for search and seizure, State's rights, etc., are shown to be vital in everyday life. The real reasons behind attempts to destroy our Second Amendment rights are brought home in dramatic fashion by a famous American hero from WWII. Then, in a hair-raising ride, the "carnival" that passes for government in Washington is exposed for the frightening House of Horrors that it truly is. As a result of these eye-popping journeys and disclosures, a whole community takes to the streets in honor of Constitution Day - and they now know, with certainty, whom to vote for... the candidate who knows and adheres to the Constitution, the bulwark of America's great power and success.

Production will begin soon on the reboot feature film Ghostbusters based on the blockbuster 1984 film, and the casting director is auditioning talent for starring and supporting roles.Slap Jack Productions and Feigco Entertainment in association with Pascal Pictures and The Montecito Picture Company, will begin shooting the sci-fi-fantasy comedy live-action feature film Ghostbusters on June 8, 2015 in Boston Massachusetts.

Ghostbusters centers on a group of female ghost hunters... Erin, Abby, Jillian, and Patty. Erin Gabler, is an academic on the tenure track at Columbia. Her former colleague and co-author is Abby Bergman, who’s more on the pop parapsychology side of things, and pursues ghosts for a living. Jillian is Abby’s ghost hunting partner. Patty is an MTA employee who comes across the main ghost. The villain will be a convicted murderer, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by a supercharged electrical storm. This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history.
Starring in Ghostbusters is Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy playing the role of Patty; Academy Award nominee Kristen Wiig as Erin Gabler; two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Kate McKinnon playing ghost hunter Jillian; and WGA Award nominee Leslie Jones in the role of Abby Bergman.
