Hell of a View 1Star Trek’s Nana Visitor has completed production on her latest project, an indie drama called Hell of a View.

Synopsis from IMDb

Hell of a View is a love story. Of people falling in love with each other, and of being in love with a dream, and harnessing that passion to make that dream a reality. After the destruction of his family’s well established Atlantic City restaurant in Hurricane Sandy, Sam Rama must grow up quickly, taking the biggest risks of his life both in business and love. When Sam comes to the aid of a wealthy patron, Tom Blake, and falls for the newly separated Sarah Bell, a chain of unexpected events unfolds for all of them, as they discover the only way to achieve their dreams may be to acknowledge what they owe to others, and realize that the greatest investments take more than cash.

“Hell of a View is about Atlantic City and dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy,” Visitor said. “It stars Hunter Parrish (from Weeds), whom I adore, and Victor Slezak (Treme) plays my husband.”

“I saw the Harbor and the East River smash together in the streets underneath my window,” she recalls. “Funnily enough, as my husband and I crept out of our building to survey the damage the next morning, a woman asked me to tell her my experience of the previous night. After she thanked me is when my myopic eyes saw the “AP” (as in Associated Press) on her jacket. People from literally all over the world called me in the next few days to tell me they’d seen me on their news station. Why didn’t I wear makeup!”
