NEW YORK, March 17, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — FilmBuff, an award-winning full-service distribution company, announced it has licensed worldwide rights to distribute “Temps,” a comedic look at modern-day love, commitment, and careerism.
The film was acquired in partnership with Grandex Productions, the content arm of Grandex Inc, a leading purveyor of millennial-driven digital properties such as TotalFratMove and PostGradProblems.
This is Grandex’s first venture into feature film. “Temps” stars Grant Rosenmeyer (“The Royal Tenenbaums”), Lindsey Shaw (“Pretty Little Liars”), Eden Sher (“The Middle”), Reid Ewing (“Modern Family”) and Chris Bauer (“True Blood”). The highly anticipated comedy will be released in select cities nationwide and available on all major VOD platforms on April 8.
Jefferson (Grant Rosenmeyer) is a temp worker. His only career goal is to afford an annual ski trip with his best friend and fellow temp, Curtis (Reid Ewing). When Jefferson falls for co-worker Stephanie (Lindsey Shaw), an ambitious go-getter with aspirations of a challenging career, he is forced to re-evaluate his minimum wage, minimum commitment lifestyle. “Temps” is a refreshing, heartfelt spin on the workplace comedy from award-winning director Ryan Sage (“A Big Love Story”).
“It’s a great film that speaks directly to the lives of 20-somethings in today’s America, and we’re excited to be working with Grandex to get it out there,” said FilmBuff’s Jake Hanly. “They know this audience as well as anybody, and the partnership is a unique and effective way to get the movie in front of its ideal audience.”
“Whether it’s been our highly successful websites or our New York Times bestselling book, Grandex has always strived to create captivating content for the millennial audience,” said Jordan Gershowitz, vice president of Grandex Productions. “Film complements our already popular and diversified media portfolio, and ‘Temps’ serves as the perfect introduction for our post grad audience to engage with this natural brand evolution.”
“Temps” is directed by Ryan Sage (“A Big Love Story”), written by award-winner Tim Bennett-Huxtable, and produced by Ryan Sage and Jason Duplissea. Jordan Gershowitz, Madison Wickham and Ryan Young of Grandex Productions serve as executive producers.
