Episode Description

This episode is for everyone who has dreams of being a filmmaker. Although Chris Debiec has worked with legendary directors, he has always been driven to create his own features. The lesson is PATIENCE and accepting the fact that 99% of the time a new creator does NOT have control of the timing. After many years of hard work, rejection and endurance, one of Chris Debiec’s projects, “Viagra Falls” has won in the Best Drama Pilot category at this year’s New York Television Festival awards. “Viagra Falls” makes it clear that sex is very much a part of life over 70. The writing, acting, and production value is exceptional. The characters are nothing less than adorable, and belly laughs are abundant!
