Gravitas Ventures has picked up Laura Holliday’s romantic comedy Daddy Issues.
The film will get a domestic digital and VOD release on June 23. Gravitas Ventures also acquired worldwide distribution rights to the indie.
Daddy Issues follows a 20-something hapless stand-up comic who, after her emotionally distant father dies and leaves her his company, must move from London to Los Angeles to run the business and win his approval, even after his death. The pic stars Kimberley Datnow, Tanner Rittenhouse, Corsica Wilson, Peter Jason and Alice Carroll Johnson.
“We are thrilled to partner with Gravitas Ventures to share our film with audiences worldwide and are incredibly thankful for their partnership,” executive producers Kimberley and Amy Datnow said Wednesday in a statement.
Laura Holiday wrote the screenplay based on a story by Amy Datnow and John Cox, with Datnow also having a producer credit.
Daddy Issues was produced by Clean Slate Production and Datnow Sisters Film.
Matthew Shreder from Concourse Media negotiated the film distribution deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
