StreetSmartvideo is filming the story of the downfall of radio superstar Craig Carton. Carton, the co-host of the Boomer & Carton show on New York's WFAN, was one of the most dominant voices on morning radio in the country. He resigned from the show in 2017 after being arrested by the FBI. He was subsequently convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy, shocking his millions of fans by admitting to a gambling addiction. He is currently serving a 42 month sentence in a federal prison camp. Our film will look in detail at the rise and fall of a radio icon.
StreetSmartVideo is producing the definitive document on the life and times of Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver. The Seaver family announced in early March 2019 that Tom is retiring from public life after being diagnosed with dementia. However, Martin and Marie spent days with Tom and Nancy at their home during 2017 and 2018, filming Seaver in his beloved vineyard. The couple also sat down for extensive interviews, which will feature heavily in the documentary. The film, a co-production with Ed Burns' and Aaron Lubin's Marlboro Road Gang and Major League Baseball Productions, will be screened on Fox on October 13, 2019.
