Title: THE KLEIN SYNDICATE
Genre: Crime Drama
Executive Producer: Calvin Bacote
Writer & Director: Sura Khan
Over the past two decades, the many stories depicting the life of a black gangsta, drug dealer in the 1980’s and 90’s was derived in many ways from the real-life events of Calvin Bacote who became known on the streets of Brooklyn and New York City as “CALVIN KLEIN.” The concept of this true story has some ideas embedded inside, which have the power to dig into your soul and change the way you see life. For starters, this character “Calvin Klein,” exists at ground zero of a special universe where life and death get the special attention they deserve. He has a shattering effect on people, good and bad. We all take for granted the inevitability of death. It forms a rigid line from which we construct our view of “the way things are.” Along comes a man who proves that the line can be crossed. His very presence gives faith, and it takes it away. Big ideas, big action, “The Klein Syndicate” is about street life, loyalty, justice and redemption, and how hard it is to play by the rules in a world where both evil and good seem about evenly matched. Enter the world of Brooklyn, through the boundless and in-depth mind of Calvin “Klein” Bacote. Klein is a mythological figure to most and an Iconic figure to others. From the child growing up in the late 60’s and 70’s to the larger than life character throughout the 80’s and 90’s. No stone is unturned! This series will walk you through places you just couldn’t go. Experience this journey through the eyes of a mother, gun of an enforcer and soul of a hustler. Calvin Klein is one of the last men standing. http://www.thekleinsyndicate.com
