Christopher Hensel


Writer/Producer/Director Christopher Hensel, who played motorcycle cousin Jeb Stuart Duke on the Dukes of Hazzard and Captain California on Saturday mornings, wants to show the world that we can make wonderful Family Faith Based films, and we plan to do just that, starting with Salvage Yard Shine Boys!

Christopher began his professional career during the mid-70s in Pittsburgh, PA working for Don Brockett Productions (Don was Chef Brockett on Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood).  Later, Chris starred in two original Off Broadway shows.  These experiences provided him the opportunity to develop original characters and learn various facets of stage direction and production.  Knowing he had “the bug,” Christopher left Pitt University- where he was studying engineering- & drove to Los Angeles, CA. to help a friend who was the director of a popular soap opera.   While in LA, he fell in love with on-camera acting & decided to enroll in acting classes.  Chris’ story is not the proverbial he was working out on Venice Beach & was discovered.   Chris’ big  break came after a chance meeting with the Dukes of Hazzard executives at CBS and Warner Brothers.  As a result, he was cast in the role of  Jeb Stuart Duke, a series regular for the  1980-1981 season.   As part of the Duke’s family, he did a guest appearance on The Family Feud with Richard Dawson & the stars of Dallas, It’s a Living, & The Jeffersons.  After a writer’s strike ended his CBS contract,  Christopher made his debut on NBC’s Saturday

morning, The Kids Super Power Hour with Shazam.  He starred in the leading  role of Captain California.  Captain Cal sang the opening theme song & recorded 14 songs for the nationally syndicated production  which earned Chris national attention.  Following his cartoon career, Chris procured film & tv roles with A list actors such as Christopher Reeves in Cobbs Law, Patrick Swayze & Keenan Ivory Wayans in The Renegades & , Telly Savalas in a Kojak tv CBS movie of the week.  These experiences permitted him to study under the direction of acclaimed director Nicholas Corea as well as other very gifted directors.

Christopher married & chose to raise his family away from the Hollywood scene.  Since those days, he  has appeared on several Soap Operas, Movies, Broadway Tours, & Cruise Ships.   In addition, he recorded an easy listening album, Tell the Wind.  With his distinctive baritone-tenor  voice, he sang at weddings & funerals, & became the choir director at his church.   In an effort to introduce his youngest daughter to theatre, he became active in several community theatre groups.  However, all of his acting experience could not prepare him for his most challenging role yet- that of cancer patient.    

In 2011, Chris  was diagnosed with Throat Cancer.   After battling the disease for several years with chemotherapy, intense radiation, & faithful prayer,  he won the role of cancer survivor.   Sadly, the cancer took away his ability to sing- a gift Chris greatly treasured.  It was difficult to live with such a loss.  Chris embarked on a  journey to reinvent himself, to identify what the Lord had planned for him next.    He began attending Dukes of Hazzard Celebrity events and Comic Cons.   It was refreshing to attend events that seemed to be filled with like-minded people who yearned for wholesome entertainment  from their youth.  Drawing from his many years in the entertainment industry, Chris began writing & producing family, faith based films.  God has blessed him with a myriad of associates that share his vision. Together with the grace of God, the members of Jeb Stuart Productions strive to make a difference in our increasingly morally corrupt & complex world.

Magic Touch Entertainment

"A beautifully written and directed story that has many colorful characters. “Salvage Yard Shine Boys” has a warm country feel with a touch of heart, music, family, and redemption. And watch out for Ashley Hensel (Kat) who is an up and coming actress, musician, and song writing dynamo!"

"All of us from Justice League Estate Sales had the unique opportunity to watch a private screening of  the film “Salvage Yard Shine Boys”. We absolutely loved it. Byron Cherry had everyone in stitches and Kat’s performance and music are amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better motion picture about overcoming fears and when family gets together, they help make dreams come true. Can’t wait for the soundtrack as well."
