Starring Jayne Wisener (The Sweeney Todd), Mark O’Halloran (Adam and Paul), Lee Arenberg (Pirates of the Carribean), A Kiss For Jed is the debut feature of director Maurice Linnane, who co wrote the script with Barry Devlin (A Man of No Importance) and produced by Tim Palmer of Ignition Films.

As her task on a TV game show, Orla, a wild 19 year old from Ireland, is sent to New York to get a kiss from country superstar Jed Wood. Ray Timmons, a forty year old with a great future behind him, is dispatched as her cameraman. In New York they meet up with porno film soundman Mike and get on the quest for Jed Wood.

They are wildly unsuccessful but two events change the course of their quest. Their odd odyssey is taken up and championed by DJ Carter on radio station WSNX.
