Sam Logan Khaleghi is a well-known Emmy-nominated producer, a director and an actor.

His latest project "Cupid's Christmas," is about efforts by the director of the Holly, Michigan Historical Society to save the community's train depot. The movie stars singer/actress Marla Moore and Joe Kurak as her love interest, Luke Murphy.

Khaleghi talked with I See You Awards Founder® Terri Lee Chandler about his start in the business, his impressive roster of movies, and of course, “Cupid’s Christmas,” in which Terri has a cameo role as a councilperson! Also, as an added bonus, Terri asked Khaleghi for tips on securing distribution. All that and more in the latest episode of Terri Talks Movies!
