Crazy Legs Productions launches feature film division
Crazy Legs Productions, a producer of reality, true crime, sports programming, and branded entertainment, has launched a narrative feature film division, Crazy Legs Features. The company has plans to release between four and six films for theatrical and digital distribution per year.
Crazy Legs Features is already in pre-production on several projects, with its first film, Front Row Killer, having just begun principal photography. The female-driven thriller will star Brooke Butler (Ozark), Teressa Liane (Vampire Diaries and Into the Badlands), and Ryan Cooper (Eye Candy). Front Row Killer also marks the feature directorial debut of Marguerite Henry (EP on Her Dark Past and Seduced), who serves as a writer on the project.
“We’ve proven ourselves as innovators and creative storytellers in the non-fiction and branded entertainment spaces,” said Scott Thigpen, Crazy Legs Productions COO and producer of Front Row Killer. “Now, we’re excited to bring our cinematic sensibilities to the big screen and to new audiences around the globe.”
Marie Halliday, Crazy Legs Productions’ director of feature development, will oversee the creation of original content and acquisitions of unique creative properties.
Front Row Killer puts the audience front row center in a tortuous tale of friendship, obsession, and fanaticism. The movie is Swimfan meets A Star is Born and asks the question, “When a friend stands in between you and your ambitions, how far are you willing to go to make your dreams come true?” Being shot in and around Atlanta, Front Row Killer is part of a Crazy Legs slate of films that according to Halliday includes such genres as thriller, romance, horror, and documentaries.
On the TV and streaming services front, Crazy Legs Productions has turned out such shows as A Season With for Showtime, Family By the Ton for TLC, Inside the Madness for Facebook, The Prancing Elites Project for Oxygen, Swamp Murders, Dead Silent and Your Worst Nightmare for Investigation Discovery, and Hidden City for Travel Channel.
