Duets Is Doin It
Karl Detkin

The major motion picture  that PNT has been working on for four years is FINALLY coming out.  "DUETS" is set to be released on Sept.15th and stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis as well as Angie Dickenson, Maria Bello (Coyote Ugly), Andre Braugher (Homicide), etc..  It has been PNT entertainment division's  goal to help make this karaoke dream come to reality.  PNT as well as PEA  provided all the music and hardware as well as offered suggestions toward the script so it was "karaoke authentic".   PNT's karaoke product has been in over 40 TV and film placements over the last 6 years.  The most memorable being Cable Guy and My Best Friends Wedding (all using Pioneer karaoke).

This film differs from the other placements as this film is ALL about the likes of karaoke fanatics.    "Duets" is a road-trip comedy about six strangers from all walks of life who have one thing in common-a passion for karaoke. They are: a small-town singer (Maria Bello) with dreams of stardom (we all know those types at our gigs) , a down-on-his-luck young cab driver (Scott Speedman) searching for the meaning of life, an ex-con (Andre Braugher) with the past of a killer but the voice of an angel, a yuppie salesman (Paul Giamatti) burned out by his hamster-like existence on the treadmill of suburbia, and an innocent Vegas showgirl (Gwyneth Paltrow) who discovers a remarkable connection to a seasoned karaoke hustler (Huey Lewis). As they converge on the $5,000 Grand Prize Karaoke Contest in Omaha, Nebraska, they collide and combust and ultimately enrich each other.

If you go see the film  you will see yours truly "Karaoke Karl" playing myself as a karaoke contest finalist singing Tom Jones' "Delilah" .
