Kristin Chenoweth’s Dramedy ‘Hard Sell’ Lands at Momentum

Momentum Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to the coming of age drama-comedy “Hard Sell,” starring Kristin Chenoweth, Katrina Bowden and Skyler Gisondo.

Sean Nabloff directed from his own script in his feature debut. Producers are Nalaboff, Jimmy Seargeant and Jared Greenman through Yellow Cote Productions. The film will receive a day-and-date theatrical release in the spring.

“Hard Sell” is set on the Gold Coast of Long Island. It centers on Gisondo’s character, a senior at an elite private school who struggles to support his unstable mom, played by Chenoweth. Desperate to make some quick cash, he enlists the help of a beautiful runaway, played by Bowden. They devise an unconventional plan of profiting off of the wayward teens at Hardy’s school — which places them amid the lifestyles of the rich and dysfunctional.

“‘Hard Sell’ is a wonderful coming-of-age story that tackles some very real questions: How do you balance the abandon of youth with the hardships of growing up?” said Momentum president Berry Meyerowitz. “How much will you sacrifice and to what ends will you go for family?”

Chenoweth is a Tony and Emmy winner. Bowden starred on “30 Rock,” and Gisondo appeared in “Vacation.”

The deal was negotiated by Larry Greenberg for Momentum Pictures, and by Greenman and attorney Paul Battista on behalf of the production.
