NFL Star Kerry Rhodes Announces Film Production Company "It's The Comeback Kids LLC"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 31, 2013) - NFL star Kerry Rhodes (www.KerryRhodes.com) is man of artistic sensibilities. At heart, he is a storyteller who thrives on blending fiction with the real world. His passion for art and film has culminated with the creation of a new production company, "It's The Comeback Kids LLC," co-founded with managing partner Anthony Holt. The company has trained its eye towards television and the feature film market and is currently in post-production on two debut projects; Gone In An Instant, a documentary that chronicles the rise and fall of NBA superstar Antoine Walker's fame and fortune, and Good Cop Bike Cop, a weekly webisode series featuring high-profile athletes that follows two mismatched partners fighting crime in suburbia.

"As a professional athlete, I find Antoine Walker's story both inspiring and tragic," said Kerry Rhodes. "It's an incredible thing to take your misfortune and use it to help educate and inspire others so they don't make the same mistakes. I admire his courage to come forward with this message." 

Antoine Walker's story speaks for itself. Amassing over $110 million during a 13-year NBA career, Walker went from being an NBA All-Star and World Champion to facing felony charges stemming from gambling debt in Las Vegas. However, vice was not his sole enemy; his generosity to more than 70 family members and friends evenly contributed to the drain of his fortune. Now successfully navigating bankruptcy, Antoine is on a mission to educate others on financial literacy, using his own story as a warning and an effective platform for others to learn from his mistakes.

The documentary is the first of many planned projects by "It's The Comeback Kids LLC" that will span film, television and new media.
