EXCLUSIVE: Entertainment Squad (Paper Spiders, and Tribeca’s audience award winning dramedy, Cherry), has acquired SXSW’s premiere film, Peak Season, and set a theatrical release for August 2.

Helmed by Henry Loevner and Steven Kanter, who previously collaborated on the critically acclaimed The End of Us, Peak Season is an exploration of personal discovery and the road less traveled set against the stunning backdrop of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The film stars Claudia Restrepo, Derrick DeBlasis, and Ben Coleman, Fred Melamed (A Serious Man, Hail, Caesar!) and Stephanie Courtney who is famously known as “Flo” in Progressive commercials.

Both a bittersweet romantic comedy and a clever social commentary, Peak Season follows a burnt-out New Yorker who travels to Wyoming with her fiancé, but then falls for a handsome, yet troubled ski-bum, and questions whether to leave her city life behind.

Loevner and Kanter commented in a joint statement: “We set out to capture millennial ennui the way Before Sunrise portrays gen X angst and the Big Chill taps into boomer alienation. We can’t wait for audiences to discover this funny, heartfelt film.”
