REVIVAL is hybrid of every film idiom: Broadway musical, Hollywood musical, animation, green screen technology, and sound stage. In its meta-theatrical stylized bridging of the theater and the audience's everyday experiences, REVIVAL is a mixed media virtual experience of the gospel according to John the Apostle. The presentation of this timeless story is told by dramatizing supremely constructed gospel music that helps recount the mission, ministry and miracles of Jesus. REVIVAL is a concert film. Nothing close since JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. ...and served up with a splash of THE WIZ. It is a gospel/funk fantasia that speaks to all throughout the world; either as a film or as a live-action musical. Every element is designed to deliver a clear, comprehensive, and compelling entertainment experience-from the vibrant wardrobe to the irresistible music; from the craft of acting and the gift of song and dance. An amazing an uniquely modern and authentic approach to the Christian narrative. Leading a world-class ensemble of excellent performers is Mali Music, who plays the central figure of Jesus in REVIVAL. Mali is a bona fide music star and verifiable musical genius. He is also one the chief composers of the film's score, and will amaze a new generation with his refreshing and profound interpretation of The Scriptures. Collaborating in this effort with Mali is Abdul Hamid Royal, an exhaustively accomplished musician and Broadway music director.

What Perez Sez About (also called What Perez Says About) is a VH1 reality television show starring celebrity blogger Perez Hilton doing what he does best- dishing all the celebrity gossip and sharing his outspoken opinions about it. The self- proclaimed “Queen of all Media” runs perezhilton.com, one of the most popular websites for celebrity news, particularly given Hilton’s ruthless and candid commentary and the “doodles” he adds to numerous unflattering photographs. While most celebrities get the lashing of a lifetime, Perez isn’t heartless and he has his favorites to sing his praises to- often musical acts like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. A big name in blogging and in music, Perez, birth name Mario Lavandeira Jr., has also established himself as a vocal member of the gay community. On what Perez Says About, he shares all of that on-screen instead of on his site as he discusses reality stars, divas, the year in review, the VMAs, and so much more!

Saturday Night Live (SNL) is an American late-night live television variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol. The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's comedy sketches, which often parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest, who usually delivers the opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast as with featured performances by a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!", properly beginning the show.
