During her move to Atlanta, Hope Leigh was stopped by a police officer late at night. He proceeded to take away her license and ask if she had anyone she could call while flirting with her. While everything ended up ok in the end, the experience left her shook.

Along comes comedian Katherine Blanford. She and Hope got together to make funny videos for local comedy showcase Ladie’s Night and Katherine thought Hope’s scary encounter would make a great short. They realized they work great together and a filmmaking relationship began!

They came on the show to discuss the making of the film, the challenges women face in the industry, telling authentic stories, and much more. Make sure to also check out My Lethal Weapon which can soon be found online!
