Documentarian and five-time Emmy winner Paul Devlin is in Oklahoma tonight to screen his new film, The Front Man.

Devlin says the film is more than a documentary - It’s also a romantic comedy, which is a departure from his usual fare.   The central characters are musician Jim Wood and his wife, Christie, who over the course of the film struggle with the choice of whether or not to start a family.  He adds the film serves as a commentary on the obsession with celebrity and the validity of art with a smaller audience.
