About Your Host

Leigh Savidge is the writer and co-executive producer of STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON. Early in his career, Leigh developed the first significant home entertainment labels for African-American and Latin/Spanish content in the US and is still active in film distribution. Current projects include SUB POP, the story of the label that developed Nirvana, Soundgarden, and the grunge movement with producer Matt Smith. Also on the way are two gangster films, REQUIEM FOR A GANGSTER and a Lucky Luciano biopic for producer Brad Feinstein, and an unnamed STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON sequel. On the television side, Leigh is developing a one-hour pilot rooted in Mexican cultural history with one of the producers of JANE THE VIRGIN. Leigh holds a B.S. from Boston University.
