    Brittany Snow’s SXSW Prize Winner ‘Parachute’ Lands At Vertical

    (2/27/24) Vertical has acquired North American rights to Parachute, the romantic drama marking the directorial debut of actress Brittany Snow (X), which won multiple awards in its debut at SXSW 2023, recognizing Snow and star Courtney Eaton (Yellowjackets). The film from Yale Productions, also starring Thomas Mann (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), is set to open in select theaters on April 5.

    Written by Snow and Becca Gleason (Summer ’03), Parachute boasts a starry cast that also includes Gina Rodriguez (Not Dead Yet), Dave Bautista (Dune: Part Two), Joel McHale (Community), Francesca Reale (Yes, God, Yes), and Scott Mescudi aka Kid Cudi (Silent Night).

    The film tells the story of Riley (Eaton), a fun and energetic young woman who struggles with an eating disorder and body image issues, and Ethan (Mann), a once-promising musician approaching the end of his 20s, watching as the two meet and just “click.” To Ethan, all of Riley’s flaws are beautiful, and he wants to help her see herself the way he does. Riley adores Ethan and is inspired by his talent and selflessness. Their relationship is a balancing act between their love for each other and their combustible personal issues. But they truly feel like soulmates and the world makes sense only when they take it on together.

    In a statement to Deadline, Snow shared that she’s “very grateful audiences will see Parachute thanks to the wonderful team at Vertical. Their understanding and passion for this film show how much they believe in complex, character driven stories and narratives which hopefully start a needed conversation. We are so excited to be their partners in this and value how they bring stories to life.”

    Calling Parachute “a heartfelt and compassionate story about young love and healing,” Vertical SVP of Acquisitions Tony Piantedosi added that “Courtney and Thomas have natural chemistry and give emotional performances that will be especially resonant for those who fall into the world of Parachute. We look forward to presenting the film to audiences this Spring.”

    Along with Snow, the film is produced by Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman, and Lizzie Shapiro. Exec producers include Clay Pecorin, Russ Posternak, Russell Geyser, Kyle Stroud, Tristin Alexandria, Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, Tyler Gould, Nicholas Donnermeyer, Jason Kringstein, Scott Levenson, Michael J. Rothstein, Roz Rothstein, Jeremy Rothstein, Jeffrey Tussi, Patrick Heaphy, David Nazar, Brian S. Unger, Scott Fink, Joseph Lanius, Randall J. Bacon, and Gus Deardoff. Co-executive producers include Monica Rothstein, Jeff Rothstein, and Julia Ebner. Bernie Stern co-produced.

    Jennifer Westfeldt, Kathryn Gallagher, Ekaterina Baker, Jeremy Kucharek, Celeste Oliva, Rico Paris, Kelley Jakle, Owen Thiele, and Chrissie Fit round out the cast.

    Vertical Partner Peter Jarowey and Piantedosi negotiated the deal on behalf of the company, with Great Escape President Nicholas Donnermeyer and Yale Productions’ attorney Ben Walter negotiating on behalf of the production.

    Cutter, who will serve as showrunner, executive produces with Cobb and 3 Arts’ Erwin Stoff. Production on the eight-episode series starts this spring in Charlotte, NC.

    Snow can currently be seen in the 2024 Oscar-nominated live-action short film Red White & Blue. Her directorial feature debut film Parachute premiered at SXSW 2023, earning two awards including the Thunderbird Rising Special Award. It is set for a 2024 release.

    NBC has renewed both of its first-year drama series, “Found” and “The Irrational"

    (11/29/23) NBC has renewed both of its first-year drama series, “Found” and “The Irrational.”

    “These shows are a testament to the incredibly passionate work of our showrunners Nkechi Okoro Carroll (‘Found’) and Arika Lisanne Mittman (‘The Irrational’), both of whom have executed their visions flawlessly,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Entertainment. “A huge thank you to the talented cast, producers and crews for their tireless commitment and dedication, which has clearly paid off with audiences making these series must-see television on both NBC and next day on Peacock.”

    “The Irrational is the #1 new show this season in total viewers while “Found” is the #1 new drama this season in the 18-49 demo.

Public relations specialist Gabi Mosely (series star and producer Shanola Hampton) — who was once herself one of those forgotten ones — and her crisis management team now make sure there is always someone looking out for the forgotten missing people. But unbeknownst to anyone, this everyday hero is hiding a chilling secret of her own.

His insight and unconventional approach to understanding human behavior lead him and the team on a series of intense, unexpected journeys to solve illogical puzzles and perplexing mysteries.

    The cast includes Jesse L. Martin, Maahra Hill, Travina Springer, Molly Kunz, and Arash DeMaxi.

    Arika Lisanne Mittman, Mark Goffman, Sam Baum and David Frankel executive produce. The show is based on best-selling author Dan Ariely’s book, “Predictably Irrational.”

    ‘Found’ Trailer Sets Up Missing-Person Drama Starring Shanola Hampton & Mark-Paul Gosselaar

    (9/12/23) (Video) NBC’s new drama series Found is turning a tragedy into something positive when it premieres on October 3. The first official trailer can be viewed above.

    The series, which hails from All American‘s Nkechi Okoro Carroll, follows public relations specialist Gabi Mosely (Shanola Hampton) and her crisis management team dedicated to finding missing persons, especially those often overlooked by the system. Gabi was once one of those forgotten ones, and is still hiding a chilling secret of her own – she has found her kidnapper, Sir, (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), and uses his twisted expertise to help solve their cases.

    The cast also includes Brett Dalton, Gabrielle Walsh, Arlen Escarpeta, Karan Oberoi and Kelli Williams.

    Found was originally set to premiere mid-season but it was decided in January that the missing-person drama was better suited for the fall. Additional scripts were ordered at the time and the studio picked up options on the cast.

    “After watching the first few episodes of Found, it quickly became clear that our love for this show has continued to grow and grow with each step of the process,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, previously told Deadline about the decision. “Our goal is always to find the absolute best home for all our series, and it’s particularly the case with one as important as this. By moving it to fall, we’re able to better leverage our resources, including lead-in and marketing muscle, enabling us to launch Found to the largest possible audience across all our platforms.”

    Carroll executive produces alongside Sonay Hoffman, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Leigh London Redman and Lindsay Dunn. Berlanti Productions and Rock My Soul Productions produce in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
