THE MAN is a backstage look at the life of a fictional music superstar from the point of view of his manager (a non-singing role). The score, most of which would be sung by the "superstar", will feature original melodies written by current "big-name artists".
Lamica will also bring Dileo's former partner Quincy Krashna, and former president of Michael Jackson and Sony Music's record label Jerry Greenberg, onto the producing team. These key players in Michael Jackson's career last collaborated on "Sisterella", created by Hart.
