|DVD/BOOK DEAL ABOUT O.J. SIMPSON
TO BE PUBLISHED BY THE LIGHTHOUSE PRESS
LIGHTHOUSE POINT, FL (November 21, 2005) -- After
preliminary negotiations, The Lighthouse Press,
Inc. and Captiva Outback, Inc. have reached a
tentative agreement in publishing a non-fiction
book series based on Captiva's 70 hours of
private, behind-the-scenes video footage of O.J.
Captiva Outback's Chief Executive Officer/Online
Filmmaker, Norman "Spider Boy" Pardo,
was granted unprecedented access by the former
sports star and the resulting footage features
Simpson at his best and worst while in and out of
the public eye.
Each book volume in the Lighthouse Press/Captive
series is anticipated to include a 2 - 4 hour
DVD, thus featuring an in depth examination and
visual context that neither medium alone could
provide. The books/DVDs will include exclusive
interviews with radio personalities, promoters,
club owners and "backstage" personnel
who risk more than just their reputations in
contributing to the project.
Captiva has reported that since making public a
tantalizing, 47-second preview, numerous entities
have approached Pardo with proposals seeking to
capitalize upon the controversial footage.
"That's to be expected," commented
Lighthouse Press publisher, Ron Richard.
"We're dealing with a controversial
celebrity and doing it in an unequivocal way.
Including a DVD as a visual collaboration of a
book's text is--at the very least--unusual. And
it certainly provides fuel to the fire of the
O.J. Simpson enigma. Whether you love or hate the
man, it's like watching a train wreak: You just
can't take your eyes off of it."
The book/DVD series will be available through
online and local bookstores everywhere. For more
