FilmRise Enters Deal to Produce Two Feature Films, Plus Distribution for 20+ Holiday Titles






FilmRise has signed a deal with Los Angeles-based Nicely Entertainment to produce two new holiday movies for distribution in the U.S. – “Sappy Holiday” starring Vanessa Sears (“The Last Man”) and John McLaren (“Heartland”) and “Snowball Effect.” The multifaceted deal also includes distribution rights for two new, never released productions from Nicely, “Adeline” starring John Schneider (“Dukes of Hazard”) and the romantic comedy “Snapshot to Love” starring Lexi Giovagnoli and Benedict Mazure.

In addition, FilmRise will get U.S. distribution rights for over 20 family-friendly romance and holiday-centric films

“Nicely’s production expertise in the family friendly romance genre makes them the perfect partner for FilmRise to continue to grow its presence in this vertical, which includes growing our offerings of programs and building proprietary destinations in the streaming space. We are delighted to be partnering with Nicely so that audiences will be able to watch festive, feel-good films any time of the year.”

The films will be available on the FilmRise Streaming Network, with plans to offer them to a variety of other broadcasters and digital partner platforms.
