Amy Baker, EVP, Ad Sales, Lifetime, LMN & FYI, said: "Under the BROAD FOCUS umbrella, the mini-movie initiative not only celebrates the Lifetime TV movie genre that we are so known for, but it also gives us a fantastic platform to showcase talented female directors, producers and writers in partnership with smart brands such as La-Z-Boy, who want to truly engage with a wide yet targeted and powerful female audience."

"Lifetime and its BROAD FOCUS initiative aligns with our target female audience, and provides her with a unique opportunity to engage with the La-Z-Boy brand," said Doug Collier, Chief Marketing Officer at La-Z-Boy. "We are very focused on educating consumers about the wide selection of great looking furniture we have to offer, and the 'Lady Cave' provides just a glimpse of the array of beautiful stationary sofas, chairs, tables and more within our portfolio."

The Lady Cave, a 2:20 Mini-movie will be hosted and introduced by Terruso. The film is produced by Tangerine Entertainment, who focus on developing female writers/ producers/directors. The Mini-Movie will be promoted across A+E Networks' social platforms, and will air within four prime time spots across A+E Networks' female-focused brands including Lifetime (Boy in the Attic; Unwanted Guest) and LMN (It Had To Be You; Center Stage III).
