Unclaimed Freight Productions’ Miller and Savin produced the film along with veteran music publishing executive Brad Rosenberger and Kristal’s daughter Lisa Kristal Burgman. “This is one of the rare films that connects with teenagers and adult rock fans alike. Who hasn’t seen that CBGB t-shirt before? Well, this is the place where it all began!” says Savin. Miller, Savin and Rosenberger recently announced their next film, another true-to-life rock ‘n’ roll film based on Gregg Allman’s New York Times bestseller “My Cross To Bear,” which will begin production this Summer and will be distributed by Open Road Films in the U.S. Gregg Allman and Michael Lehman (Gregg’s manager) are also producers on the project.
