Producers Corner: Jami Gertz and Stacey Lubliner Talk About A Better Life

Actress Jami Gertz and former agent Stacey Lubliner set up a production company Lime Orchard Productions in order to produce films about the human condition. Their first film out of the gate as producers is the well received A Better Life which is now playing in selected theatres across the country. Jami and Stacey shared what drew them to the script and why they got interested in producing after having such different previous careers in the entertainment business. (Jami will still be acting if a good role comes along.)
