A group of former soap stars are aiming to launch a new TV comedy show with the help of Kickstarter.
The project aims to raise £10,000 to produce three episodes to be shown online, in the hope of it then getting picked up by a TV channel.
Storyline will be set behind the scenes of a long-running radio drama about a group of people in a trendy block of flats in London.
Also among the cast are Cemetery Junction actor Steve Speirs, Holby City's Tilly Blackwood, former Coronation Street actor Ray Emmet Brown, The Wright Way's Joanne Matthews and Les Miserables singer Cameron Blakely. »
Mimi Steinbauer’s Radiant Films Intl. has closed key territories on romantic comedy “Dare to Be Wild,” which had its world market premiere at Berlin’s European Film Market.
Starring Emma Greenwell (“Shameless,” “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”) and Tom Hughes (“Silk,” “About Time,” “Cemetery Junction”), “Dare to Be Wild” centers on an Irish girl from the countryside who challenges the wealthiest of British high society at a world-renowned flower show, bringing her spirited, offbeat style into the traditionally conservative competition.
Film is being sold in the vein of beloved underdog films like “Billy Elliot” and “Slumdog Millionaire.” Key distributors who have bought “Wild” include the Klockworx Co. (Japan), Pinnacle Films (Australia/New Zealand), Cinemundo (Portugal), Gulf Film (Middle East), Forum Film (Israel), Blue Reign (South Africa), Myndform (Iceland) and Captive (airlines).
