C Street is a comedy farce about a power-hungry intern who pimps out his apartment to sex-starved politicians. Guy was on the fast track to power. All that changed one day when Guy found Haley, the object of his affections, waiting naked in his bed – for someone else. Unbeknownst to Guy, his slick Senator boss was using Guy’s apartment to have an affair with Haley. Before Guy has a chance to express his true feelings, half of Washington shows up at Guy’s apartment unannounced and looking for love. Guy will have to corral the libidinous lawmakers, and decide what’s truly important if he’s going to find redemption and win the girl of his dreams. Written by Brett Lewis

What is something you feel is important for our readers to know about your film?
We set out to make a movie that satirizes politics, in a no-holds-barred, laugh-out-loud way, and I think we delivered on that. I would like to think of our movie as the antidote to what’s going on in politics right now.
What should viewers expect from your film?
Our film has a Man Boy, an inflatable goat, and a Ziploc bag full of cocaine. We set out to make a sharp, funny, outrageous satire, and that’s what viewers should expect. We had an amazing cast for this film, we were so fortunate to have such terrific actors. People will recognize a lot of great people in this film.
Do you have any production stories our readers might enjoy?
Without a doubt, the party scene. In the movie, a bunch of libidinous lawmakers all converge on the main character Guy’s apartment at once, dragging various escorts, mistresses, and staffers with them, all wanting to consecrate their “love” at the same time. Things get pretty crazy. Between shots, the whole cast crowded into a cramped hallway. At one point, one of our stars wanted to pop into his trailer, which was parked around the corner, but he was wearing a bra and feather boa. After peeking out the door a few times, he ran out onto the street, only to retreat back into the hallway moments later when he was spotted. Suffice to say, America has never seen him play a role like this, and he’s amazingly funny in it.
