Initial development will focus on packaging, financing and distribution in the USA/Canada, then internationally for worldwide exposure of the following Dr. Finkelstein projects:
* “Marilyn Monroe Returns: The healing of a soul” – is a highly publicized published novel that received strong media coverage on CNN, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, GERALDO RIVIERA, FOX TELEVISION tells the remarkable story of seven and a half years Dr. Finkelstein researched, and in a way, treated Sherrie Lea Laird, revealing the mounting evidence that supports her claim of being Marilyn Monroe reincarnated. Sherrie Lea Laird, who goes by the stage name Sherrie Lea, is a Canadian pop singer whose dance remix of Sade’s “No Ordinary Love” topped the charts in Canada and Europe.
Dr. Finkelstein notes there are undeniable physical similarities—bone structure, voice pattern, handwriting—coupled with the astonishing memories that surfaces during her therapy sessions which convinced Dr. Finkelstein of her authenticity and belief that her claim is of a troubled psyche seeking relief, not notoriety. Will it convince the general public or anyone for that matter?
Please visit Dr. Finkelstein’s official websites:
* An eight-episode cable reality television series based on the case files of Dr. Finkelstein.
* “Search for Love” – a spec screenplay by Dr. Finkelstein
