Electric Entertainment acquires Ask Me to Dance
July 20, 2022
Electric Entertainment, the Los Angeles-based production and distribution company, has announced the acquisition of the feature film, “Ask Me to Dance,” written & directed by Tom Malloy (Love N’ Dancing). The deal includes US and Canadian rights, as well as parts of the Caribbean basin islands.
Dean Devlin, CEO of Electric Entertainment, commented: “This title is a welcome addition to our library of films – a romantic comedy perfect for holiday viewing. We strongly believe it will reach a broad audience and look forward to distributing it widely.”
Starring Briana Evigan (Step Up), Mario Cantone (Sex and The City), Joyce DeWitt (Three’s Company), and Tom Malloy (Love N’ Dancing), “Ask Me To Dance,” is an endearing romantic comedy about two people destined to meet and fall in love on New Year’s Eve. Jack (Malloy) is an I/T programmer, a great guy, unlucky in love. Jill (Evigan) is a graphic designer, a great gal, and just as unlucky. They have no idea they are destined to be together. On a starry night, Jack and Jill separately meet a fortune teller (Alison England, Smothered By Mothers) who tells them they will meet the love of their life before midnight at the end of the year, which happens to be only five days away. The countdown begins, and both Jack and Jill go on a series of horrible and hilarious dates, each worse than the last. Each time, they barely miss meeting each other. New Year’s Eve is getting closer. Will the fortune teller’s prophecy come true? Will they meet and fall in love?
Jason Chambers (Human Weapon), Julianne Arrieta (Reagan), Courtney Warner (The Instant Messenger), Jesse Kove (Cobra Kai), Catherine Mary Stewart (Weekend at Bernies), Kurt Angle (former WWE Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist), and Luciana Faulhaber (Iron Man 3) are also featured in the film.
“Ask Me To Dance” is a Trick Candle Production and was filmed in Rochester, New York. The film was Executive Produced by Charlie Shrem and Sean King. The deal was negotiated by Ben Kim, Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at Electric Entertainment and Pip Ngo, Vice President of Sales & Acquisitions at XYZ Films.
