 HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Feb 27, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- BSEG | news | PowerRating | PR Charts -- Big Screen Entertainment Group (OTC:BSEG) is proud to announce that it has inked a deal to co-produce and distribute a new documentary from William Shatner.

The documentary chronicles choreographer Margo Sappington and the Milwaukee Ballet Company's quest to create a new ballet based upon Mr. Shatner's critically acclaimed album, "Has Been." Mr. Shatner co-wrote the album with producer/singer/songwriter Ben Folds, and performed most of the songs on the album, with support from such diverse artists as Henry Rollins, Aimee Mann, Joe Jackson, Brad Paisley and Lemon Jelly.

"This documentary is very unique. I really don't think there's anything else quite like it," stated BSEG CEO Kimberley Kates. "Many of the lyrics from 'Has Been' are of a very personal and poignant nature, and to have those songs interpreted into dance, especially ballet, is quite remarkable to see."

Primarily shot in and around Milwaukee, Wisconsin by local production company Special Entertainment, Big Screen and Five Star recently filmed additional footage with Mr. Shatner and his wife Elizabeth at the Falcon Theater in Burbank, California.

"This piece will show a different side of William Shatner, and touches upon details about his life and career that have not been revealed before," said BSEG President David Zappone. "When you add in never before seen footage and information about this legendary television icon, you have the makings of a fascinating documentary."

Big Screen and Five Star will distribute the doc directly under their new, soon to be announced distribution banner.

While perhaps best known as "Star Trek's" "Captain James T. Kirk," Mr. Shatner currently plays "Denny Crane" on ABC's "Boston Legal," a role for which he has won several Emmys, and was recently nominated for a Golden Globe.

The project is scheduled for completion in May 2008.

Wait, so is it a documentary or a ballet?
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

I think it's a documentary on the ballet that happened last year.
