LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sourced Media Books announces the release of MarVista Entertainment film, Waffle Street, on DVD today, for sale at major retailers, including Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, Barnes & Noble, and f.y.e.

Waffle Street is the true story of Jimmy Adams, who loses his job as vice-president of a $30 billion hedge fund and decides to pursue a new course as a waiter at a 24-hour diner. The comedy/drama stars James Lafferty (One Tree Hill) in the role of Adams and Julie Gonzalo (Dallas) as his wife, Becky. Screen legend Danny Glover rounds out the cast as Edward, an ex-con short-order cook who teaches Adams hard lessons about life, finance, and grits.
Offering a fresh take on the fallout of corporate greed, Waffle Street is a tale of discovering honest work, unlikely friendships, and personal redemption. The film was named Best Feature at the 2015 Hollywood Film Festival and received the Audience Award for Best Feature at the Red Rock Film Festival.
About Waffle Street
Waffle Street is an adaptation of Jimmy Adams' memoir of the same name, which chronicles his table-waiting days after a layoff in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. As Jimmy struggles to fit in with a motley crew of waiters and cooks on the weekend graveyard shift, he finds himself on the receiving end of many lessons in life’s ironies. In a unique narrative, Adams deftly unravels the enigmas of money, banking, and economics as he relates humorous episodes of a white-collar fish far removed from familiar corporate water.
