Skate God is an original story and screenplay by Alexander Garcia, a retired professional skateboarder now screenwriter and producer. This marks the first skateboarding action hero film with plans to launch a comic book series.

The story centers around a skateboarder in a Dystopian world who discovers he is a scion of a Greek god and is plunged into a battle with a clandestine society hell bent on overtaking humankind.

"A film like this is every action director's dream....a little Mad Max and a lot of Hellraiser! I look forward to putting the same actor driven action on this film as I do on SouthLAnd," says Peewee Piemonte.

Peewee Piemonte is the stunt coordinator on TNT's hit show SouthLAnd.   Some of his many Stunt Coordinator television credits include: Numb3rs, Men of a Certain Age. The Defenders, The L Word, Mad Men, and Aaron Sorkin's mega hit show for HBO The Newsroom. Feature credits include: Barry Levinson's What Just Happened, Lauren Shuler Donner's Unaccompanied Minors (also 2nd Unit Director), and his newest project August: Osage County starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Ewan McGregor, produced by George Clooney and directed by John Wells.

The project is being produced under Alexander Garcia's Multi-Valence Productions banner alongside Impact Motion Pictures with a targeting date in late summer in New Mexico.  Producers are Garcia, Stephen R. Hudis, Lindy S. Hudis, Louis Race, and Julie Michaels.
