Alexson to helm Dogsmile Pics' romantic farce
Kyra Sedgwick and Rob Morrow are set to star in Dogsmile Pictures’ romantic comedy “Labor Pains.”
Todd Hoffman will produce and Tracy Alexson will direct the ensemble farce, which begins a New York shoot in October.
“Labor Pains” focuses on a woman who manages to keep her pregnancy secret until the last possible moment. The action takes place in the 12 hours leading up to the delivery, when her family, her ex-boyfriend (Morrow) and her ex-boyfriend’s family descend upon the hospital.
Sedgwick is enjoying a successful run in the Broadway production of “Twelfth Night.” Her feature credits include “Something to Talk About” and “Phenomenon.”
Hoffman most recently produced “The Settlement,” now in post-production, starring John C. Reilly, William Fichtner and Kelly McGillis.
His previous credits include “Meeting Daddy,” starring Lloyd and Beau Bridges and “Love Life” starring Carla Gugino, Saffron Burrows and John Tenney and Bruce Davison.
Morrow starred in the long-running CBS series “Northern Exposure.” His feature credits include “Mother,” “Last Dance,” “Quiz Show” and the upcoming feature “Into My Heart,” which will preem at the Venice Film Festival.
Sedgwick was repped in the deal by Jill Littman at Bymel O’Neill Management, ICM’s Steve Dontanville and attorney Ira Schreck. Morrow was repped by manager Judy Hofflund and the William Morris Agency.
