LANSING, Mich.Sept. 2, 2022PRLog — Just in time for the holiday weekend! For those that don’t mind a mild helping of ads during their couch-locked story time, BEST YEARS GONE (Beer, Racecars, Murder) has just been released to Tubi TV. Fresh from accepting recognition in Comedy/Drama at the 27th Indie Gathering International Film Festival, this quirky dramedy just rolled out to TV broadcast and advertised-based free video watching (AVOD).  Collective Development Inc. produced the movie with Shane Hagedorn directing. The screenplay was from DJ Perry, who adapted author Karl Manke’s book ‘Hope from Heaven‘ for the screen.  Compared to ‘Fargo,’ ‘Raising Arizona’ and other quirky tales, if that style is for you, this might be your jelly jam.

But wait! Best Years Gone isn’t the only Deskpop Entertainment film hitting AVOD.  (Cue creepy music, rustling leaves) Stalking right behind Best Years Gone onto Tubi, AVOD, and broadcast is the tense thriller BESTSELLER.

NOTE! While both start with ‘BEST,’ the two films are vastly different.

BESTSELLER was also based on a book of the same name written by horror author, Christopher Knight. He’s also known to millions of youth readers as Johnathan Rand. (American Chiller/Adventure Club) This collaborative film once again had Collective Development Inc. supervising the production. What Christina Rohn directed is a nail-biting, mystery-thriller that borders on slasher. The film stars Melissa Anschutz as a literary agent who is harassed by a disgruntled writer.

Collective Development Inc. (CDI) is based in Lansing, Michigan, making both films proud Michigan-Made productions. Both feature stories from Michigan-based authors and are brought to the screen by hundreds of dedicated artists. The hauntingly beautiful scenery of Michigan is showcased throughout both films. CDI has a large body of work expanding into the marketplace www.cdiproductions.com . “Handcrafted stories from artists who care,” is the reason that was given by CDI’s for their ever-growing following.
