Doug Spearman On Hot (Gay) Guys with Guns
Making it in Hollywood can be murder may be the tag line for openly gay actor turned director/producer Doug Spearman's ("Noah's Arc" TV series and films) upcoming movie Hot Guys with Guns, the first gay action-comedy film produced by his production company The Ogden Group, but it may very well be the tag line for a gay black man trying to make it in Hollywood.
Somehow, Spearman has been able to make it. With movies (particularly detective stories) and musicals driving his ambition early in his childhood, Doug has enjoyed a consistent and long career in the entertainment world as a television creative director, writer, twice-Emmy nominated producer and commercial director. He has launched several networks including UPN, SoapNet and LOGO, in addition to producing and directing for the established ABC, CBS, NBC, BET and E! Entertainment Television.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
