McHeffeys four-year run with Sterns TV and radio shows and related promotional appearances have brought the 37-year-old Red Bank native national fame. Now, Dead On Arrival, a remake of a classic 1950 film noir “D.O.A.,” is scheduled for online release March 1, with McHeffey in the starring role of a man investigating his own murder. Plans for a TV show are in the works, McHeffey said.
