Ricky Redman, Co-Executive Producer (at mic) was speaking at a sneak preview of “Next PayDay” at the Sea Rocks Dome in Maxwell, Christ Church after a hugely successful screening of the sequel to blockbuster comedy “PayDay.” He told the packed auditorium there’ll soon be a TV series based on debates in rumshops open for sponsorship.

Admitting there was an original goal of 3 films per year, Redman explained the backlog was due to the sequel being more labor intensive than the first, proof being the amount of cast and crew listed in their end credits. He added this film and its predecessor were made out of personal pocket, with limited sponsorship almost at end of filming. The Co-Executive Producer urged guests to spread the word how investing and branding are immediately available to help defray costs.

Director Selwyne "Get Bizzy" Browne (seen here with Tourism Minister Richard Sealy) told the invited guests there are immediate plans to have another in this series to make it a conclusive trilogy.

Without giving away the ending, the wayward heroes Romie and Pack failed to reach the deadline to pay the balance of the money on the land set aside for the garage due to government taxes and other regulations.

The owner, Gus, gives the property to a local church, which wants the space for its new fellowship hall. Romie goes to the Pastor to beg him to sell the property only to find out that the Pastor is the uncle of now heavily pregnant Latisha, and he’s willing to sell it back on the proviso he marries Latisha.
