‘How to Stay Married’
Los Angeles-based Dynamic Television has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to Princess Pictures and Pablo Pictures’ comedy How to Stay Married.
Based on an episode of It’s a Date, the eight-part show created and written by Peter Helliar follows Helliar and Lisa McCune as Greg and Em Butler, who have been married for 14 years.
Things have become a bit stale and when Em takes on a new job and Greg loses his, they get more change than they bargained for. An unexpected house guest and meddlesome neighbors add chaos to the challenge of holding the marriage together. The cast includes Darren Gilshenan, Phil Lloyd and Nikki Britton.
Natalie Bailey (Loaded, Open Slather, The Thick of It) was the lead director on the show produced by Jess Leslie, with Andrea Denholm and Emma Fitzsimons as the EPs. The series premieres on Network Ten next month.
Dynamic TV will launch sales at the MIPCOM market in Cannes next week.
