Filmmaker’s statement

Marshall Law is an oddity on my filmography, as it’s a film I didn’t write and characters I didn’t create.

But when Motel Pictures brought the project to me, I fell in love with the concept and characters, knowing full well who I wanted to play the lead roles. I was very fortunate and humbled to get real life husband and wife Mike Beaver and Jennifer Baxter to play husband and wife police partners Mike and Barb Marshall.

Marshall Law was created by husband and wife team Noah and Emma Aiken-Klar and developed with husband and wife Matt and Nicole Hilliard-Forde.

Being married AND working with my wife, the Marshalls’ situation hit close to home and I’m hoping it does with other couples as well. We all know a thing or two about raising kids, working together and staying married.”
