Comedy stars Rockwell as alcoholic coach

Lionsgate has picked up North American and U.K. rights to James Strouse’s comedy “The Winning Season.”

Strouse is a Sundance vet. His pic “Grace is Gone” sold to the Weinstein Co. “Season” was a late addition, joining the Premieres section in December.

Plum Pictures and Gigi Films produced the pic, which stars Sam Rockwell as an alcoholic who becomes a high school basketball coach as part of his recovery.

Cinetic handled the sale.
