Regent Entertainment Acquires RomCom "Weather Girl"

Regent Worldwide Sales, the sales affiliate of Regent Entertainment, announced today that it has acquired the international sales rights (excluding North America) to the new romantic comedy, "Weather Girl," from writer/director Blayne Weaver.

"Weather Girl" features sitcom star Tricia O'Kelley ("The New Adventures of Old Christine," "Gilmore Girls,") and Emmy-nominated actor Mark Harmon ("NCIS," "The West Wing"). The film - a Secret Identity Productions' film in association with T&A Pictures, Steakhaus Productions, and H2R Productions - also stars Jon Cryer, Ryan Devlin, Jane Lynch, Kaitlin Olson and Patrick J. Adams.

"Weather Girl" focuses on a Seattle TV news show weather girl (O'Kelley) who learns that her boyfriend/morning news anchor (Harmon) has cheated on her. Forced to cope with the realities of being thirty-something, single and unemployed, she begins an unlikely romance with her brother's best friend, who's younger than she is.

"We took many meetings about the future of 'Weather Girl' but Regent's reputation and track record along with their love for the film made it an easy choice."

Weaver added, "We're so excited that Regent will be introducing 'Weather Girl' to an international audience."
