PROTECTION: THE FIRST FIVE WOMEN (feature film & television series)
BY: Clark Childers
Forty years ago there was a milestone event in United States Secret Service history.
It was the first time in the organization’s 106 year founding that a woman, five women to be precise, would be sworn in as special agents.
The Washington Post published an article for the unprecedented occasion.
Dateline: WASHINGTON (UPI) – Five young women took the oath of office today as special agents of the U.S. Secret Service, and became the first of their sex to join the 106-year–old agency. Customarily, they would be referred to as “pretty” or at least “attractive,” since this is true of most young women successful in their careers.
The story follows Kathryn Childers through her time working at the White House to meeting The Kennedys and protecting their daughter, Caroline.
"AMERICAN EVE: EVELYN NESBIT, STANFORD WHITE — THE BIRTH OF THE 'IT' GIRL AND THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY" (feature film & tv series)
WRITTEN BY: Paula Uruburu
The scandalous story of America’s first supermodel, sex goddess, and modern celebrity, Evelyn Nesbit, the temptress at the center of Stanford White’s famous murder, whose iconic life story reflected all the paradoxes of America’s Gilded Age.
Known to millions before her sixteenth birthday in 1900, Evelyn Nesbit was the most photographed woman of her era, an iconic figure who set the standard for female beauty. Women wanted to be her. Men just wanted her. When her life of fantasy became all too real, and her jealous millionaire husband, Harry K. Thaw, killed her lover—celebrity architect Stanford White, builder of the Washington Square Arch and much of New York City—she found herself at the center of the “Crime of the Century” and the popular courtroom drama that followed— a scandal that signaled the beginning of a national obsession with youth, beauty, celebrity, and sex.
The story of Evelyn Nesbit is one of glamour, money, romance, sex, madness, and murder, and Paula Uruburu weaves all of these elements into an elegant narrative that reads like the best fiction— only it’s all true. American Eve goes far beyond just literary biography; it paints a picture of America as it crossed from the Victorian era into the modern, foreshadowing so much of our contemporary culture today.

Meet CRIS MARSHALL, SONGwriter/MUSICIAN
Cris grew up in a musical home, in the small town of Haslet, Texas. He received his first drum set from his father at the age of two and by 8 he was playing his first guitar. Not long after, Cris discovered he had a talent and a love for songwriting. Born into a musical family, Cris got an early introduction to the music scene and life on the stage. Alongside his dad, Cris began performing at some of Dallas/Fort Worth's most well known music venues such as Trees, Curtain Club, Ridglea Theatre, Galaxy Club, and The Hard Rock Cafe. It was during these early performances that Chris developed a sound that was all his own.
In the seventh grade Cris began performing at local talent shows, honing his skills as a true performer.
“I was performing at a high school talent show in Lake Worth, Texas. I remember the students charging the stage knocking over my parents and others. That day we ended up winning first place for stage performance, creativity, and crowd response."
It became clear what Cris was meant to do in life...Music.
At 18 Cris opened a home recording studio where he worked with many new artists and bands. In his twenties Cris gained a solid reputation as a music producer, recording bands all over the country. Before he knew it his studio business had taken off. Producing and song writing for other artists and bands quickly consumed all of his time, leaving his own career as a performer on the back burner.
