Never Saw is Coming is a thriller in the style of Alfred Hitchcock that will challenge viewers to question their own values.
Keisha Ceylon is a psychic. At least, that's what she passes herself off as. She watches the news for stories of missing family members and by the way, she charges for this service, and likes to see the money up front. Keisha's latest mark is a man whose wife disappeared a week ago. So she pays a visit to her troubled husband and tells him her vision. The trouble is her vision just happens to be close enough to the truth that it leaves this man rattled. And it may very well leave Keisha dead.
This led Gail Harvey and Marina Cordoni and Face2face host David Peck to talk about the cement ceiling for women, hope, communication and hard work, people management and collaboration, pushing boundaries, and why women in the industry have faced so many different challenges than men and why sometimes we need permission to laugh.
Marina Cordoni is the Founder and Producer of MCE Inc. a Toronto based production company and film sales agency. In the nineties, Cordoni worked for various entertainment companies including the film division of PolyGram Filmed Entertainment, where she handled pre-sales and completed picture sales in various foreign territories on major independent hits including 4 Weddings and a Funeral, Dead Man Walking, Fargo and Sleepers. She was also instrumental in building a feature film production and foreign sales division at Toronto based Breakthrough Entertainment between 2008- 2013. Recent Producer credits include the latest feature from Gail Harvey Never Saw It Coming (based on the Linwood Barclay novel) and The Butler Brothers.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
