A 'GREAT' DEAL FOR HOMELESS MAN
World View Entertainment has acquired the TV and cable rights to
"Have a Great One! A Homeless Man's Story," written by
Ohio-based scribe Laurie Anthony.
World View will join with Santa
Monica-based Robert Rehme Productions ("Patriot Games") to
turn the book into a TV movie for either broadcast or cable.
Anthony - an elementary school teacher in Dublin, Ohio - wrote the
inspirational book based on her conversations with J.C. Simmons, a
homeless man and former high school teacher she met while he was
panhandling near Carnegie Hall.
Anthony had moved here with her husband so her son could attend a performing arts
high school. She's since moved back to Ohio.
Simmons' New York teaching career (1962-76) encompassed Massopequa Junior High,
Wyandanch Memorial High, Parkway Prep School, Alfred E. Smith Boys School,
Joan of Arc High, High School of Fashion Industry and Booker T. Washington Junior High.
Author, "Have a Great One! A Homeless Man's Story."
