The Details

The 17-minute Television Pilot teaser that doubles as a short film serves as a slice and catalyst into the world of Lewis’s full project that is being developed as a One-hour EPISODIC fictionalized drama/thriller limited series revolving around actual events set upon the backdrop of the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. Padlock Men is the perfect intersection of 'American Gangsta' & Steven Spielberg's 'Munich'with the intelligent gritty ruthless and humanistic compassion of the WGN’s ‘UNDERGROUND’.

The Short Film pilot teaser follows 86 yr. old Walter “Posey” Fodrell (Lewis T. Powell) sharing one of his youthful memoirs of a historically unknown secret pact between Martin Luther King, Malcolm X & John F. Kennedy. "Blood for Blood Knuckles Dirty" the Civil Rights movement will never be viewed the same.

Powell plays the lead “Walter Posey Fodrell” and is known for CSI, Dexter, the Sony Released Squatters and the upcoming Halle Berry Daniel Craig film ‘KINGS’

PADLOCK MEN also features actor Jermaine Williams of the GREAT DEBATERS, STOMP THE YARD; Antonio D. Charity of “GREY’S ANATOMY”, “NCIS: LA”, Alex Weed of CRIMINAL MINDS, LETHAL WEAPON, Bobby Reed with credits of 75+ plays, 100+ films & television appearances along with the beautiful Sade E. Moore.

Padlock Men has 16 ‘Official Selections’ National & International such as the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival, San Diego Black Film Festival, Houston Black Film Festival, First Glance Los Angeles, Hobnobben Film Festival winning 4 awards from Best Television pilot to Best Short Film along with 8 nominations of 1 which Lewis was nominated for Best Actor at the Las Vegas Black Film Festival film festival.
