S.C. filmmaker: Channels showed porn, not his comedy

Mar 23, 2010 11:43:00 PM - thestate.com
A filmmaker and former state lawmaker said he is suing two cable channels after they mixed up his comedic film with a smutty flick with the same name.

James "Bubba" Cromer, who works as the state House of Representatives' reading clerk, said he was thrilled when TV listings and promos began airing on Showtime's The Movie Channel earlier this month for his film, "The Hills Have Thighs."

His 2008 comedic movie tells the tale of a hillbilly abducted by space aliens and a group of women who search to bring him home.

Cromer, an independent filmmaker whose day job is presiding over procedures in the House of Representatives, assumed his agent had successfully sold the film to Showtime.

"I thought I had hit the big time," Cromer said.
