Happy New Year 2022 from AJ EPYX PRODUCTIONS

2021 was a pivotal year for myself and AJ Epyx Productions, LLC by getting back to what I love to do and tell compelling stories worth the investment. I pray in the new year that some unfinished business gets done and to have that breakthrough moment both personally and professionally. Success is what you make of it.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS: DEEP DIVE – THE SECRET OF MY SUCCESS (1987)

The final deep dive of Unfinished Business for 2021 is a nostalgic trip back to NYC in the late 80s with the Michael J. Fox corporate screwball comedy THE SECRET OF MY SUCCESS. Released in 1987, it was one of Fox’s few hits outside the Back to the Future trilogy and came out during the height of his fame as the star of NBC’s Family Ties. Hosts Jeff Gallashaw and Andre Joseph of AJ Epyx Productions look back to see if it’s as good as they remember it with some eye-opening trivia along the way.

Follow Jeff on Instagram @Projectorj1 and @Unfinsihedb2 and on Twitter at MrUniverse and Unfinsihedb1. Follow Andre’ on Twitter and Instagram @ajepyx and see more about his film work at AJepyxproductions.com.
