An example of this in action is Reading Works, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving adult literacy in Metro Detroit. The Free Press is a founding member of this organization and 100% of the net proceeds of this premiere will go to help teach adults how to read. The Free Press is proud to be part of this event."  A Q&A with cast members, writer Mark Ethridge and director Curt Hahn followed the premiere.

Reading Works is dedicated to raising the level of adult literacy in Metropolitan Detroit and promoting the idea that Reading Works – in the family and in the workplace. Reading Works believes that every adult in our community should be able to read well enough to perform essential day-to-day tasks.  Reading Works believes that it can play an important role in raising the level of adult literacy in Metro Detroit.

Inspired by a true story, Deadline is a powerful movie that viewers most often say reminds them of To Kill a Mockingbird.

"  Deadline  is a powerful movie with a very strong, redemptive worldview about the search for truth and justice...Matt and Bullock’s adventures in solving this case take them into the communities, homes and hearts of both whites and blacks."
~ Renee Green, Movie Guide
