Zoe Lister-Jones Makes her Directorial Debut with Indie ‘Band Aid’

“Life in Pieces” star, Zoe Lister-Jones is set to make her directorial debut with the indie “Band Aid”, which she also wrote and produced.

Lister-Jones also stars alongside Adam Pally and Fred Armisen in the story of a couple who, in the wake of a miscarriage, can’t stop fighting, so decide to turn all their fights into songs and form a rock band to save their marriage.

Hannah Simone, Colin Hanks, Brooklyn Decker, Jesse Williams, Susie Essman, Ravi Patel, Jamie Chung, Chris D’Elia and Jerry O’Connell (Billions) are also on board.

Lister-Jones hired an all female production crew led by Producer Natalia Anderson, Cinematographer Hillary Spera, Production Designer Hillary Gurtler, Editor Libby Cuenin and Line Producer Kristen Murtha.

With lyrics for the original songs written by Lister-Jones and composed by Kyle Forester, she, Pally, and Armisen recorded the music live during production, with Pally on guitar and Armisen on drums.

“I wanted to foster an environment that was collaborative and empowering for women,” said Lister-Jones.

Lister-Jones penned the script and produced under her boutique production company, Mister Lister Films, which she runs with filmmaker and husband, Daryl Wein, who served as EP on the project.

The film is financed by QC Entertainment with the company’s principals Sean McKittrick, Ray Mansfield, Edward H. Hamm Jr. and Shaun Redick also serving as executive producers. QC Entertainment, which is the recently formed partnership between McKittrick, Hamm, Mansfield and Redick, upcoming projects include Michael Sheen’s feature directorial debut “Green River Killer” and Jordan Peele’s feature directorial debut, “Get Out.”

Worldwide Sales are being Co-Repped by WME and QC Entertainment.

Lister-Jones most recently starred in HBO’s “Confirmation” and is represented by WME, Mosaic, and Jackoway Tyerman.

Armisen is represented by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorneys Jared Levine and Corinne Farley. Pally is with 3 Arts, UTA and attorney Jon Moonves.
