Starz Encore's Love Stories(SM) Heats Up November With the World Premiere of 'I'm With Lucy'
'(S.Y.P.F.) Single Young Pretty Female Seeks the Ideal Man' Romantic Romp From the Executive Producer of 'Serendipity' And 'Y Tu Mama Tambien' ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Starz Encore's Love Stories channel will get pulses racing with the world premiere of the romantic comedy "I'm With Lucy" on November 3, at 8 p.m. ET/PT (with subsequent plays throughout the month). The film comes from Executive Producer Amy Kaufman who brought two very different types of romantic films to theaters last fall, the provocative "Y Tu Mama Tambien" and the warm comedy "Serendipity." "I'm With Lucy" is based on the ageless romantic fantasy of every woman that she will one day find her Prince Charming. The story revolves around Lucy (Monica Potter -- "Head Over Heels," "Patch Adams," "Along Came A Spider," "Con Air"), a romantically challenged twenty-something woman, who is struggling to make sense of her life and loves. Recently dumped by the man she thought was her perfect mate, she hurtles headlong into a disastrous series of blind dates only to learn that Mr. Perfect is not always Mr. Right, and Mr. Right is not always perfect. Frustrated by her seeming inability to find the ideal man, Lucy doesn't realize until it's almost too late that she's already found her true love. The film stars an impressive cast highlighted by Academy Award(R) winner Julie Christie ("McCabe & Mrs. Miller"), two-time Golden Globe nominee Henry Thomas ("Gangs of New York," "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial"), 2002 Emmy(R) winner for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series Anthony LaPaglia ("Frasier," "The Guys," "Analyze That"), John Hannah ("mds," "The Mummy Returns," "The Mummy"), Harold Ramis ("Stripes," "Ghostbusters"), and heartthrobs Gael Garcia Bernal ("Y Tu Mama Tambien," "Fidel") and David Boreanaz ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Aspen Extreme"). The film was directed by Jon Sherman ("Breathing Room") with first-time screenwriter Eric Pomerance penning the story. Kaufman ("Serendipity," "Y Tu Mama Tambien") executive produced, with Fabien Liron ("Me Myself I") and Tim Perell ("World Traveler," "The Opportunists") acting as producers. "I'm With Lucy" ( http://www.lucy-lefilm.com/ ) was shot entirely on location in New York City and Miami, Florida.
