Neon Tommy was on the Paramount lot Monday evening for the Los Angeles premiere of "Waiting for Superman”, the latest documentary from the filmmakers of “An Inconvenient Truth”.  

This provocative film follows a number of students and their families across America exposing the weaknesses of the current public education system and presenting solutions. The film, backed by Participant Media, won the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. On hand in support of the film were producer and USC alum Lesley Chilcott, President and CEO of Harlem Children’s Zone Geoffrey Candada, actress Cheryl Hines, and Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa.
