Gregg Allman Biopic Producer Pleads Not Guilty To Manslaughter Charges

Jay Sedrish, executive producer of the doomed Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider, has entered a not guilty plea on manslaughter charges following the death of a staffer on set.

Sedrish was indicted on the charges earlier this month, as fellow producers Randy Miller and Jody Savin also surrendered themselves to authorities.

Miller and Savin, who are married, were released by the Wayne County Sheriff's Department, after posting $27,000 bail apiece. Miller and Savin own the company Unclaimed Freight Productions, which was shooting the film on a train trestle in rural Georgia on February 20.

A train approached unexpectedly, killing Jones and injuring others of the crew. Investigators say that Miller started production without a permit.

Allman had initially also filed a suit against the producers but has since dropped it.
