FilmRise, Nicely Entertainment join forces to make pair of Christmas movies

Seasonal romantic movie Sappy Holiday

New York-based studio and streaming network FilmRise and LA-based Nicely Entertainment are partnering to coproduce two full-length feature films.

Christmas-themed movies Sappy Holiday, starring Vanessa Sears and John McLaren, and Snowball Effect will be coproduced and distributed exclusively in the US by FilmRise.

As part of the agreement, FilmRise will also pick up two newly completed but as-yet unreleased feature films produced by Vanessa Shapiro’s Nicely as well as more than 20 of the producer’s family-friendly romance and holiday-centric films.

The unreleased feature films are Adeline, starring John Schneider, and romantic comedy Snapshot to Love, starring Lexi Giovagnoli and Benedict Mazurek.

The deal was negotiated by Max Einhorn, senior VP of acquisitions and coproductions for FilmRise, and Scott Kirkpatrick, executive VP of distribution and coproductions at Nicely Entertainment.

Einhorn said: “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 programmes and building proprietary destinations in the streaming space.”
