Jon Hamm: Did Jon Hamm, Greg Mottola finance “Confess, Fletch?”

An American actor, director, and television producer, Jon Hamm paid 60 percent of his salary from
“Confess, Fetch” to help finance the shooting. Greg Mottola also spent a lesser amount to get the shooting to go on. Bill Block, the executive from Miramax, only covered 27 days’ worth of shooting. Hamm and Mottola tried to find external funding to extend the shoot to 30 days, but every financier rejected them. Mottola said everyone was skeptical about whether
‘Fletch’ comedy would work. The financiers felt like,
“Who, Fletch?” Jon Hamm subsequently gave up 60 percent of his salary for the show’s budget.

Mottola stated that he paid some money as well, but not as much as Hamm because Mottola had three children and Hamm was wealthier. The two were able to finance three days’ worth of shooting. They managed to get one day in Rome and 30 days in Boston. Mottola said Miramax was very supportive creatively and did not stop them from casting anyone.
