LOS ANGELES, June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Film producer and actor Jeffery Patterson has signed a deal with former Walton TV star Judy Norton to write a movie for his film production company Once Upon a Dream Productions.

The film, which is still untitled, will mark the second movie that Norton has written for Patterson's movie production company. In 2012 Norton wrote Finding Harmony, a family drama, which is in the process of signing a distribution deal in preparation for release.

With a strong eye on the family friendly market, actor and producer Jeffery Patterson formed Once Upon a Dream Productions.

"My goal is to produce films the entire family can watch and enjoy together, like TV shows I grew up with, Bonanza, The Walton's, Little House on the Prairie and the movies of John Wayne like The Cowboys and from writer/director John Hughes, like Home Alone and The Breakfast Club."

"I couldn't be happier to team up with the talented Judy Norton on another film. I love working with her. Most people know her as a great actress, but she is an incredible writer, too. She wrote the very first movie I produced, Finding Harmony, and I can't think of anyone that I would rather write this film," said Patterson.

"I am excited to team up once again with Jeffery Patterson and O.U.A.D. to create another family friendly film. Our first movie Finding Harmony was a true labor of love and I expect an equally fulfilling experience with this new project," said Judy Norton.

Finding Harmony received a Dove Award.

Finding Harmony was an official selection of the Heartland Film Festival in 2014.

Finding Harmony won the Pearl Award at the International Family Film Festival in late 2014, which best exemplifies the purity and enduring strength of the family bond.

Inspired by his daughters and their own passion for acting, he moved to Los Angeles to take the "Hollywood bull by the horns". The loving father of four currently resides in Los Angeles and is now in pre-production for the sequel to "Hot Bath."
