A new psychological thriller from Master P is coming to Amazon Prime on Oct. 1.

A music mogul/film producer and New Orleans native who's also lived in Baton Rouge, Percy "Master P" Miller and son Romeo Miller are collaborating again with film director LazRael Lison on "#UNKNOWN."

The trio first worked together on the romantic drama "Never and Again," released earlier this year and starring Jackie Long and Louisiana's Denise Boutté.

"Years after a series of random murders took place in 2017, book author Michael Lane (played by Hal Ozsan) suddenly begins receiving haunting calls from the unknown," the synopsis for "#UNKNOWN" says. "Instead of focusing on the encore to his successful debut book, he becomes obsessed with this mystery and spirals out of control as he unravels each victim caught in the web of a sadistic killer."

The film stars Hal Ozsan ("Dawson's Creek," "The Blacklist"), Tom Sizemore ("Saving Private Ryan," "Relic," "Heart and Souls"), Master P ("Never and Again," "I Got the Hook Up"), Boutté ("Why Did I Get Married," "Meet the Browns"), Nicholle Tom ("Beethoven," "The Nanny"), Judd Nelson ("Lost Voyage," "The Breakfast Club") and Ray Stoney ("Law and Order: Los Angeles," "Remember The Titans").

"It was great collaborating with LazRael on a second film," Master P said. "We are excited to bring fans a suspense thriller this time, with even more movies to come in the near future!"

The production is from Genius Minds, High Rolling Entertainment and Summer House Pictures in partnership with Asah Entertainment. It will also be available for streaming on iTunes, Apple TV and Google Play.

'Pit Bulls' update

Although the Animal Planet series "Pit Bulls and Parolees," which usually shoots in New Orleans, is not filming right now due to the pandemic, the work at the Villalobos Rescue Center continues and has even expanded.

Last year, Villalobos founder and proprietor Tia Torres was called in when about 50 wolfdogs were abandoned in Texas after their owner died. When local law enforcement could not secure help for the animals, Torres agreed to take on the large-scale rescue and a Villalobos branch was established in Athens, Texas, exclusively for wolfdogs. 

That's when Torres launched a GoFundMe to help finance the new facility. So far, $19,730 has been raised.

"Pit Bulls and Parolees," which began airing in 2009, follows the inner workings of the Louisiana rescue facility and daily lives of its team as they rescue, care for and help match pit bulls with potential owners.
