THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- The Woodlands, TX-based TRUTH Entertainment, LLC is breaking down doors and bringing Hollywood to the Lone Star State.
Chairman, and co-founder, Joe Newcomb, founded TRUTH Entertainment as a result of a long and successful history in the oil & gas, and chemical trading industries, with TRUTH Industries.
CEO and co-founder Tony Notargiacomo’s success with start-ups and business development within the cable television and technology sectors, and most recently from billion-dollar luxury real estate company, Club Holdings, LLC, is combining with Newcomb’s success in attracting Hollywood heavy-weights to The Lone Star State.
TRUTH Entertainment has a simple idea: buy scripts and produce films with industry leaders, but from right here in Texas. Looking to close the initial $25 million fund to finance and produce three to six independent films per year in the $5-15 million range, the company is looking to add investors and to the current list of film projects.
