The first movie created about the founding days of Amazon is set to air on January 24 and Nick Friedman, a Tampa resident, and co-founder of College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving, is back in front of the camera.
Spanglish Media recently produced the upcoming movie “Bezos,” a biopic following Jeff Bezos’s founding days of Amazon and the first film made about Amazon’s early days.
In the film, Jeff Bezos’ conflicted first employee, Shel Kaphan, is played by Friedman.
“This is truly a compelling time for entrepreneurship globally,” Friedman said, in a statement. “Our company, College Hunks, started from humble beginnings with one truck, in which I was the first original employee. I look forward to bringing that raw experience to tell the story of Shel Kaplan, Amazon’s first employee.”
Marcus Lemonis plays the role of David Shaw, the hedge fund manager and boss of Jeff Bezos before he quit his job to launch Amazon. Jeff Bezos is played by Armando Gutierrez, the well-known producer and star of the hit movies The Little Mermaid, Walt Before Mickey, and Anastasia, among other titles.
Alberto de la Cruz and Armando Gutierrez from Spanglish Media produce the movie. Vision Films is the distributor of the film, and it will be available on major streaming and cable platforms across the United States and Canada on January 24.
The film is based on the book, “Zero to Hero,” the story of Jeff Bezos by Tashena EBanks.
College Hunks co-founders Omar Soliman and Friedman are co-executive producers of the film.
