It’s A Masterpiece, It’s got so many subconscious layers to it, that you can’t stop thinking about it!”

— David The Memory Guy

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 24, 2023 / — Imagine a world where a chocolate cake can make anyone lose weight. Well, come take a ride in this wacky comedic world of Faith Appletree (Jody Mortara) and Hope Johnson (Megan McGarvey) as these two contentious sisters bumble their way into a sweet chocolate revenge. Jody Mortara wrote “Cocoa” then teamed up with film-maker Joe Gawalis where they co-directed this chocolate covered caper bringing it to life.

Fear not gentlemen, this female driven, family friendly comedy hasn’t forgotten about you! Tony Cucci and Artie Pasquale, from the “Soprano’s” TV show fame round out this chaotic escapade surrounded by a band of screwball characters.

Animal lover? “Cocoa” doesn’t just refer to the chocolate cake, nope, that’s also the name of the devious chocolate cake loving Golden Retriever. Watch what happens when this inquisitive, playful dog decides to take part in the ‘testing’ of the miraculous chocolate cake invention.

Looking for a deeper meaning in films? In this edge-of-your-seat comedy, these sisters actually discover the meaning of life. Navigating through all the twists and turns of this adventure, they realize that hope and a love for God is what really matters.

Filmed primarily miles away from New York City in the beautiful landscape of Morristown, N.J., wonderful locations, such as the spectacular St. Peter’s church, where head preacher Ann Thatcher landed a supporting role as Margaret Chapman.

A co production of Spen Gollie Pictures, I.D.C. Entertainment and P.O.D.S Productions, this zany comedic caper has just made its streaming release on (Amazon) with more platforms to follow in the upcoming months. Starring Jody Mortara, Megan McGarvey, Cedric Gegel, Siena D’Addario, with Artie Pasquale, Tony Cucci and James the Dog.

The takeaway? “Cocoa” is one funny, chocolate filled adventure that can be enjoyed anytime, by anyone. “Cocoa” invites people to use their gray matter to connect the dots of each character and story line that will ultimately culminate in an unexpected yet fulfilling ending.
