Roughcut TV boss Ash Atalla and his former head of comedy Dan Hine have reunited to establish a comedy feature film company.
Who’s On First, which is backed by People Just Do Nothing indie Roughcut, will focus on producing mainstream comedy movies and comedy dramas with transatlantic appeal. Atalla and Hine plan to champion contemporary ideas which celebrate the humour and painful realities for living in a 21st century interconnected world.
The venture has secured funding from financing outfit Los Angles Media Fund (Lamf) for the development of its first feature, & Mrs. The project is a dark take on the wedding film genre – the story of a girl who decides to go ahead with her wedding ceremony despite the fact that the groom has just died. London-based Australian writer Melissa Bubnic (Shameless), is to pen the script.
