The roller-coaster adventure movie "The Jensen Project" explores the secret community of world-class geniuses who do cutting-edge research that they share anonymously to help the world. Starring are Patricia Richardson ("Home Improvement"), LeVar Burton ("Star Trek: The Next Generation"), Kellie Martin ("ER") and Brady Smith ("CSI"). "The Jensen Project" is produced by Muse Entertainment and Procter & Gamble Productions, Inc.
