Comedy Dynamics announced they have acquired the comedy mockumentary, The Social Ones, from executive producers Stephanie March, Danielle Kosann and Laura Kosann, and will release it on March 3rd, 2020 through the Comedy Dynamics network, their hybrid distribution system composed of Comcast, Amazon Prime Video, Spectrum, Apple TV, Dish, Google Play, DirecTV, Vimeo, YouTube and more.
The Social Ones, written and directed by Laura Kosann,is a mockumentary that explores the lives and anxieties of a group of social media “influencers”. The film, which received the 2019 Audience Award for Best Comedy Feature at Cinequest Film Festival, stars Richard Kind (Mad About You reboot, Inside Out, A Serious Man), Debra Jo Rupp (That 70s Show, She’s Out Of My League, Garfield), Peter Scolari (Newhart, Girls, That Thing You Do), Stephanie March (The Invention of Lying, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit) and Nicole Kang (CW’s Batwoman, You, Swallow).
Deadline called the female-led project:“The perfect remedy to the onslaught of likes, retweets, Insta-fame that has been furiously raining down on culture for the past decade,”
The Mercury News said “The Social Ones satirizes our social media obsession,”
“In a world that’s been taken over by social media, The Social Onesgives us an eye-opening and hilarious insight to the types of personalities that rule these social networks,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
“The Social Ones is a love letter to our generation; it satirizes the most timely topic right now – social media – and shines a comedic light on what everyone thinks about social media…but doesn’t necessarily say. Great comedy is a huge part of Comedy Dynamics’ DNA, and that was very important to us. We could not be more thrilled to join their lineup,” said writer and director Laura Kosann.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work on the other side of the camera with such terrific work sisters,” said Stephanie March, executive producer, and cast member.
The deal was negotiated by Anna Roberts of Comedy Dynamics and Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films.
