‘New York is Dead’ premieres on festival

New York is Dead is going to premiere on The New York Television Festival and perhaps Jemima will attend! Lets hope so! The event is on October 23-28 in New York, obviously.

The New York Television Festival has announced their official selections for their Independent Pilot Competition which include 52 original television and digital pilots and series, 37 of those being world premieres. This year’s festival, which takes place October 23-28 at the Helen Mills Theater and Event Space in New York, puts the spotlight on diverse and independent voices including projects from and about women of color, as well as the Latino and LGBTQ community.

“There’s been a promising movement in television to foster and promote creators with wide-ranging and diverse experience and points of view – and I think we’re seeing those efforts come to fruition with this year’s slate. The goal of NYTVF has always been to identify the very best stories, and connect the creators of these projects with our industry partners. Seeing such a spectrum of voices being elevated organically this year, it’s heartening, and hopefully a bellwether of things to come,” said Terence Gray, executive director of the NYTVF in a statement.

UK comedy-drama Wild Honey Pie has wrapped a four-week shoot in Wales.

The film marks writer-director Jamie Adams’ fifth feature, his previous credits include Black Mountain Poets, which played at Edinburgh and SXSW in 2016.

The project is produced by Adams’ Twenty Dollar Pictures, alongside David Wade and Maggie Monteith for Dignity Film Finance and Fivelanes Films, in partnership with Noel Clarke and Jason Maza through Unstoppable Entertainment.

Unstoppable previously produced director Adams’ Cobie Smulders-starring feature Songbird, which wrapped earlier this year and was picked up for world sales by AMP International.

Wild Honey Pie follows a woman who is pressured to move beyond her meandering writing career and get a more stable job. She decides to mount a Shakespeare by the Sea festival, an ambitious plan that could have tricky ramifications for her marriage.

Jamie Adams commented: “It has been wonderful to be back in Wales with this incredible group of talented people. Wild Honey Pie has been in development for some time, and getting us all together in the same place has been a challenge worth taking.”

Producer Maggie Monteith added: “Our slate of films with Jamie continues to bring great talent in front of and behind the camera, to an initiative that is proving itself to be both fun and rewarding. It’s an addictive process.”

Producer Jason Maza added: “We’re excited to be collaborating with Jamie again after a successful experience on Songbird, he has unique filmmaking style that is original and fresh and we can’t wait to see the end result.”
