Santa Monica-based The Johnson-Roessler Company will produce and finance its debut feature Harrison For America, a satirical look at political fundraising.

The company's David Johnson, Craig Roessler and Jesse Singer are serving as producers. Dennie Gordon (What A Girl Wants) is set to direct and production is scheduled to begin this spring.

'Our vision for The Johnson-Roessler Company is to fill the broad, commercial void for socially and politically relevant film and television,' Johnson said. 'Harrison For America represents the type of content we are committed to delivering to the public.'

Alex Berger, who wrote network television's Commander In Chief, wrote the script after interviewing professional fundraisers in Washington DC and Los Angeles. He is the son of Bill Clinton's former national Security Advisor Sandy Berger.

Former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe and his senior advisor Peter O'Keefe will serve as consulting producers on the project.

Prior to establishing The Johnson-Roessler Company, Johnson was a founder of technology investment fund Agility Capital and was formerly senior executive vice president of MGM.

Roessler was previously the senior vice president of programming and creative affairs of MGM Worldwide Television.
