Great storytelling has the ability to transport and transform the audience to a place they have never been, hook us emotionally, create joy and empathy in unexpected ways, make us laugh, or provide a wild ride of excitement that is extremely cathartic. It taps into the common thread of human experience.
Sometimes we learn something new from a great story that brings history to life, sometimes we come together with the common feelings that connect us all, and sometimes they just create the great collective experience. A great story transcends global boundaries. A great script contains memorable lines that are quoted by future generations.
Jeff Ross Entertainment (JRE) is committed to developing literary works of substance dealing with humanity, the world and times we live in, and the things that engage us all in a meaningful and memorable entertainment experience.
