Our critically-acclaimed documentary WILD CARD: The Downfall Of a Radio Loudmouth premiered on HBO in October, 2020 and is streaming on HBO Max. The film examines the rise and fall of Craig Carton, the extraordinarily talented co-host of the renowned Boomer & Carton show on New York's WFAN. Craig Carton was one of the most dominant voices on morning radio in the country but resigned in 2017 after being arrested by the FBI. He was subsequently convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy, shocking millions of fans by admitting to a secret gambling addiction. He was sentenced to 42 months. In a series of interviews before beginning his sentence, Carton talked candidly about his addiction and the millions of dollars he risked at the blackjack table. We also filmed revealing interviews with key people in his life including co-host Boomer Esiason and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. We talked to Craig after his release. He is now host of the hugely-successful Carton & Roberts show on WFAN. Click here to see the official trailer: https://youtu.be/DVC1zq9rzaQ

We are proud to produce Seaver for Fox. The film featured Tom's last and exclusive interview and moving footage of the late Hall of Fame pitcher and his wife Nancy at their California home and in the vineyard that had become the center of Tom's life. We interviewed fellow Hall of Famers Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench and Hank Aaron and then-Mets owner Fred Wilpon, in addition to Seaver's teammates Ron Swoboda, Jerry Koosman and Ron Darling. Seaver was particularly poignant as it was screened following the news that Tom retired from public life after being diagnosed with dementia. Narrated by lifelong Mets fan Ed Burns, our film was regularly screened on Fox Sports following its premiere on the Fox network. Martin and Marie appeared on Sid Rosenberg's Sid Sports Sunday on WABC radio to discuss their film.
