Joining us on the couch new CEO Lara Lavi of Death Row Records is expanding into film production. Death Row Records CEO Lara Lavi said her new Death Row Films division is set to shoot “Sons 2 the Grave” in Toronto in October, with Tonya Lee Williams, Dorian Harewood, K.C. Collins (“Flashpoint”) and child actor Cameron Miles Jones on board.

The indie hood drama, written and produced by Lynn Stoltz and near to signing a director, features Collins as a young basketball phenom returning to an embattled inner-city ghetto after two gunshots cut short his dream of an NBA career. “This film embodies what we’re trying to do with Death Row, to tell human stories that don’t always have happy endings, and that allow us to learn from violence and disenfranchised lives, but not glorify it,” Lavi said.

WIDEawake Entertainment Group, Lavi’s Toronto-based shingle, acquired Death Row Records out of bankruptcy in January for $18 million.
