His first feature documentary, The Wolf, explored the collision of race, class and addiction through the personal prism of his own addiction and incarceration in the late 1980s. Pete has since produced or developed projects for ABC, PBS, MSNBC and HBO. His current project, The Waiting Room, is a unique social media/documentary hybrid that chronicles the lives of patients stuck in the waiting room at a struggling inner-city hospital.
