Woodson spent a year revising his script. The concept took three years to bring to film and was shot in 42 days. Post-production was completed in September 2005, screened at several festivals through 2006, before purchase and release in 2007 by Maverick Entertainment Group.
The film follows the mis-adventures of on-the-take good-hearted LA cops John Abel and Malcolm Cain. Set in modern Los Angeles, the film uses a 1970s feel, with the leads dressed in 1970s garb and driving a 1969 Chevy.
The film includes supporting roles by TV reality star Flavor Flav, as Slim Jim, and Terrence Flack from TV's Everybody Hates Chris and The Shield, as Malcolm Cain. Other supporting roles are played by Shane Woodson from Zodiac, Resident Evil: Extinction, NBC's Las Vegas television series and Sarah Jones.
