HighballTV has released a first-look photo for its musical feature film Mother of all shows, starring Emmy-nominated actress Wendie Malick (Young Sheldon, hot in Cleveland, BoJack Rider).
The film is directed by and also stars Melissa D’Agostino (Tactical girls), as well as cast members Ann Pornel (Baroness Von Sketch Show), Darryl Hinds (Overlord and the Underwoods), Juan Chioran (sneakerella) and Phil Luzi (Bad blood), Tara Consoli (Kim’s convenience), Michael Miranda (Murdoch Mysteries) and Trevor Martin (Six guns for hire).
Written by D’Agostino and David James Brock, Mother of all shows follows Liza (D’Agostino) as a woman dealing with the impending death of her estranged mother. In her mind’s eye, she retreats to a 1970s variety show where the all-powerful host is Liza’s own mother, Rosa (Malick), who leads a singing, dancing cast of players from Liza’s past and present. Scene by scene, song by song, Liza works through parts of their past while trying to visit her mother without losing herself in the process.
Matt Schichter produced the film, featuring original songs by Brock, D’Agostino and Rebecca Everett.
Mother of all showswhich will be shown as the opening film at the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival in June, is sold worldwide by Forward Motion Entertainment in Cannes.
