CollegeHumor’s Coffee Town is coming to cable.
HBO and Cinemax will exclusively air the film on American television for an 18-month period that begins this month and extends through October 2015.
“The reaction to Coffee Town has greatly exceeded our expectations,” said CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen, who was a producer on the film. “I’m excited for more people to stumble upon it in a different environment and join the movie’s fan base.”
Coffee Town was the first feature film from CollegeHumor, a property of IAC-owned Electus Digital. The workplace comedy from director Brad Copeland (Arrested Development) stars Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as Will, a 30-something website manager who bands together with his two best friends when he finds out that his local coffee shop-turned-office is being renovated into a bar.
Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation), Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Josh Groban (Crazy, Stupid, Love) also star in the film, which was released digitally, with a series of limited theatrical engagements in July 2013.
Electus International, which brokered the deal, also secured licensing agreements with Sky in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and Canal Plus Spain in Spain and Andorra.
