Screen Media Films and Starz Digital Media, the digital distribution unit of Starz, have partnered to acquire all North American rights to Ellie Kanner’s comedy Authors Anonymous, which stars Kaley Cuoco, Chris Klein, Dennis Farina, Jonathan Bennett, Dylan Walsh, and Teri Polo. The film is slated for early Spring 2014 release date across VOD and digital platforms and in select theaters.
The movie is "about a dysfunctional group of unpublished writers. When they accept Hannah (Kaley Cuoco) into their fold, the last thing they expect is her overnight success. Can these lovable misfits achieve their artistic dreams and avoid killing one another in the process?"
“Life imitates art in many films but we were really drawn to Ellie Kanner’s very funny, and too true, take on the ultimate Hollywood success story,” said Suzanne Blech, President of Screen Media.
“I am very excited to be working with the teams at Screen Media and Starz Digital Media,” said Ellie Kanner in a statement. “And I am thrilled that the film will have the chance to reach the widest possible audience in theaters and on VOD.”
Cuoco is, of course, best known for her role on TV hit Big Bang Theory.
