Skouras Gets “Swimmers”

Skouras Gets "Swimmers"

Skouras Films has announced a deal for U.S. rights to Doug Sadler‘s “Swimmers.” The company plans to release the movie in major markets next year and Sundance Channel has secured pay television rights, in a deal negotiated by Cinetic Media. Melanie Backer, David W. Leitner, and Michael Yanko produced the movie, which won the Grand Jury Prize Award for Best New American Film at the 2005 Seattle International Film Festival. It debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. The film is described as the “inspiring story of human frailty and individual strength in the face of a fracturing American dream.” Tara Devon Gallagher, featured as one of the dancers in “Mad Hot Ballroom”, makes her debut in the film, which also stars Tony Award winning actress Cherry Jones (“Doubt”, “The Heiress”).
