OVATION PREMIERES FIRST ORIGINAL MOVIE "WE'LL TAKE MANHATTAN" ON SATURDAY, MARCH 3

Santa Monica, CA - February 8, 2012 Ovation, the only network dedicated to art, artists and all forms of artistic storytelling, will premiere its first original movie, We'll Take Manhattan on Saturday, March 3 at 8:00pm ET/9:00pm PT.

Set in the 1960s world of fashion photography, the 90 minute film was written and directed by John McKay (Life on Mars, Crush), and produced by Kudos Film & Television. We'll Take Manhattan explores the relationship between ground-breaking British photographer David Bailey and his model and muse Jean Shrimpton, particularly during their legendary New York photo shoot for British Vogue in 1962. The film is the story of that wild week, their love affair and how they changed the world of fashion photography forever. The film stars Aneurin Barnard (Olivier Award winner for Spring Awakening) as David Bailey and Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) as Jean Shrimpton.

Young Cockney up-start photographer Bailey persuades British Vogue to hire his unknown model and girlfriend, Jean Shrimpton, for a major fashion photography layout in Manhattan. Over the course of the shoot, they shatter every established rule of fashion photography, outraging Vogue fashion editor Lady Clare Rendlesham (Helen McCrory: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2) and rattling her assistant, Larry Schwarz (Joseph May: Episodes). Bailey and Shrimpton's famous shoot set the 1960s world of fashion photography ablaze with their inventive style.

The film is executive produced by Claire Parker, Ruth Kenley-Letts and John McKay. We'll Take Manhattan was produced by Rebecca Hodgson and line produced by Ian Hogan with costume design by Ralph Wheeler-Holes. Tim Palmer is director of photography, David Charap is editor and Kevin Sargent is composer.

We'll Take Manhattan is a co-production between Ovation and BBC and was produced by Kudos Film & Television. It is distributed by Shine International.
