Clark Wraps Up Telefilm

Dick Clark Film Group, formed last December as the longform production arm of Dick Clark Prods., has completed its first telefilm project, “Death Dreams.”

Neil Stearns, senior v.p. with the company, aims to turn out four to six longforms annually and projects that the three additional telefilms this year will have an aggregate production commitment of $15 million to $20 million.

The first project, “Death Dreams,” is about a woman haunted by her child’s ghost. It stars Marg Helgenberger and Christopher Reeve and was produced by Roni Weisberg, with Martin Donovan directing from a script adaptation by Robert Glass from a William Katz novel.

While the initial project is for basic cable, Stearns emphasizes that the new division is looking toward any outlet, including theatrical film, “where we can produce with quality and at an appropriate price.”
