Hollywood, CA – July 6th, 2018
A mother-and-son team of filmmakers are creating quite a buzz in the movie world with their debut film ‘Dig That, Zeebo Newton’, a story about a small-town misfit who gets bullied, fired from his job, threatened with eviction, then is abducted by the meanest family in town and held prisoner in their barn.
Award-winning recording artist Muck Sticky, and his mother, author Linda Kaye Lowery, co-wrote, directed, and star in this heartwarming tale.
Known for his unique brand of comedic music and videos, Muck stars as Zeebo, a lovable goofball who runs afoul of a family of bullies known as The Hammerheads. Based on true events, but set in a fictional town, this film has won numerous festival awards including the Silver Award for Best Feature in the NYC Indie Film Awards.
With an impressive supporting cast that includes Jerry “The King” Lawler (Man On The Moon, WWE Legend), Willie “Too Big” Hall (The Blues Brothers, Soul Men), singer-songwriter Keith Sykes (Jimmy Buffet’s Coral Reefer Band), and Oscar-winner Frayser Boy (Hustle & Flow), this movie was filmed on location in Memphis, Tennessee, and the cast features some of Memphis’ most iconic entertainment legends.
