Additionally, they developed a documentary which Spencer and M17 will produce entitled FOREVER HOLLYWOOD. It is about the past, present and future of the Grauman’s Chinese Theater, now called the TCL Chinese Theater (http://www.meteor17.com/forever-hollywood).

The documentary will premiere via Proffer’s long term arrangement via Fathom Events in over 20 territories in 2020, then exhibited downstream, on multiple broadcast outlets, worldwide.

Today, Di is actively working with the Meteor 17 team and Spencer in particular, to liase with Spencer en route to becoming a global media ambassador and production partner to numerous Chinese market and media companies and top television and radio stations.
