The article profiles Alfred Haber, one of the few indie distribs who has been making his way to the top, supplying the odd series, event special, reality fare and award show while the Hollywood majors were zagged in the international Television marketplace for 38 years. Haber runs his company from New Jersey and is a fixture at trade shows and the Screenings. In the 1960s, Haber caught the showbiz bug, at one point repping both Elvis Presley and the Jefferson Airplane for RCA Records.
