IN FULL EFFECT (FOX):
This is the first film we made together... a documentary about teenagers in New York... Very proud of this, and very grateful for the journey it has taken us on.
RACING LE MANS. (Discovery/Velocity) We spent an entire year charting Patrick Dempsey's transformation from actor to racer... all the way to the 24 Hours of LeMans. Here's the final episode. Dramatic stuff!
GRANDPA DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? (HBO)We won an Emmy for this. A film we made for HBO aimed at kids... trying to understand the tragedy of Alzheimer's Disease.
With Maria Shriver.
BREAKING THE NEWS: (CBS)
This 90 minute doc with The Museum of TV & Radio focused on the great broadcast journalists of our time, as they told the stories behind the stories. TV Guide gave this "a perfect 10." One of our absolute favorites.
BOND GIRLS ARE FOREVER: (MGM) This is a 2012 update to our doc about the Bond Girls. We travelled around the world with Maryam D'Abo, spending time with these amazing iconic women, and somehow survived to tell the tale,
Here's a lovely little film we made recently about Malibu, celebrating the City's 25th Anniversary. Includes gorgeous footage, and the irrepressible Dick van Dyke at 90!

We made this drunk-driving film as part of a National High School program. Real, local people playing themselves in horrific, fictional circumstances.
MIRACLE AT TRAPPER CREEK: We spent three months in Montana, filming in a Government Job Corps program. Sounds dull... turned out to be inspirational and deeply moving... seriously! A favorite at Planet Grande.
STRIPPERS: THE NAKED STAGES (HBO) When HBO asked us to spend months hanging out with strippers, we naturally declined. Then we came to our senses. Howard Stern himself raved about this doc... It's a fascinating, poignant story of an industry very few really understand. But lots of nudity, so be warned.
