STARZ MEDIA INKS DEAL WITH LIFETIME TELEVISION TO AIR HIT FEATURE MAD MONEY

Jun 08, 2009

Lifetime Television has acquired the basic cable premiere rights to Overture Films’ star-studded crime comedy Mad Money.  The deal was brokered by Starz Media, Overture Films’ affiliated company that also handles its domestic TV sales.

Mad Money follows Bridget Cardigan (Academy Award®-winner Diane Keaton, Annie Hall, Something’s Gotta Give), who is on the verge of losing her comfortable, upper middle class lifestyle when her husband is downsized from his job.  Armed with only a decades-old English degree, the one-time suburban mom is forced to accept the only position she can find – janitor at the Federal Reserve Bank, where she bonds with Nina (Oscar®-nominee Queen Latifah, Chicago) and Jackie (Katie Holmes, Batman Begins).  Together, they devise and successfully carry out a plan to smuggle soon-to-be destroyed currency out of the Reserve.  However, a minor misstep soon alerts the authorities.  The film, which also features Ted Danson (Damages), was directed by Academy Award®-winner Callie Khouri (Thelma & Louise, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood).

“With its all-star cast and hilarious story, Mad Money is exactly the kind of movie that will appeal to our viewers,” said JoAnn Alfano, Executive Vice President, Entertainment, Lifetime Networks.  “We’re very happy to have Mad Money as part of our lineup, as it will further strengthen Lifetime’s diverse slate of programming that spans original movies and series, as well as acquired films and off-net shows.”

 

Starz Media has had an ongoing association with Lifetime.  Last year, it co-produced a trio of original television movies for the Network, including Wisegal, starring Alyssa Milano, James Caan and Jason Gedrick; Queen Sized, with Nikki Blonsky and Annie Potts; and True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet, featuring JoJo and Valerie Bertinelli.

 

“Whether we’re dealing with Overture’s theatrical slate or the TV movies we produced, we’ve had a positive and rewarding relationship with Lifetime,” noted Gene George, executive vice president of Worldwide Distribution for Starz Media.  “Lifetime is the perfect platform for this movie and we are sure it will be a great success.”

Mad Money was one of the few independent studio releases to connect with audiences in 2008, earning more than $20 million at the domestic box office, and then going on to perform well on DVD and on-demand platforms.  It is currently airing in its exclusive pay TV window on Starz.
