AFM 2012: Intandem Boards Holiday Rom-Com 'Holidater'
Los Angeles- and London-based financing and distribution group Intandem Films has boarded the romantic comedy project Holidater as a co-producer, U.K. distributor and world sales agent.
The script to Holidater was co-written by Christina Huntington and Daniel Maddox of 3 Arts Entertainment.
It's the story of Lucy Morris, a workaholic marketing executive who, to avoid being alone over the holidays, strategically finds a man with a great family on Halloween, dates him through Christmas and breaks up with him on New Year's. But when she starts to fall for her latest target, and his eccentric family, her life is thrown into disarray.
Terri Melkonian of Terrimel Entertainment will produce Holidater together with Gary Smith and Sepideh Haftgoli of Intandem.
The shoot is planned in the spring for a December 2013 release. Casting is underway.
Intandem will release Holidater in the British market and is selling the project worldwide to buyers at AFM.
