Often I like to write about my friends who are so successful and also true entreprenurs–this is my friend Pam Laudenslager who I met years ago when we were both volunteering at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital.
An entrepreneur and former senior executive at Avon Products and Estee Lauder Pam Laudenslager founded an ethnically diverse entertainment company Hemisphere 2 Entertainment, LLC.www.hemispheretwo.com. That does feature films, TV broadcast and theatrical productions.
Currently Pam is a producer for the Broadway smash hit Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps (reopening at the Cort Theater April 29th) and the Off Broadway production, Beebo Brinker Chronicles, with fellow producer Lily Tomlin. She is a consultant for international distribution for the hit Broadway musical Xanadu. Hemisphere 2 is representing a variety of Broadway and Off Broadway shows targeting Brazil
They are currently pitching 2 feature films ThranAtlantic, the untold story of Alcock and Brown, the FIRST aviators to fly across the Atlantic 8 years before Lindberg and Road Runners, a little told WW II story of the of the “Red Ball Express”, the mostly Black unit who delivered under extremely dangerous circumstances the supplies for Patton’s troops to help end the war. Both films are about heroism, courage, beating the odds and true grit!
