TUBI BEGINS PRODUCTION ON "SPREAD" STARRING ELIZABETH GILLIES, DIEDRICH BADER, TERI POLO, TIM ROZON AND HARVEY KEITEL

Inspired by a True Story, The Tubi Original Movie from Tubi Films and Cartel Pictures Follows an Idealistic Young Woman Who Takes a Job at an Outdated Adult Magazine

Bryan Craig, Blake Harrison, Keith Walker, Dia Frampton, Jonah Platt and Diora Baird Also Star with Elizabeth Gillies Also Serving as Executive Producer

SAN FRANCISCO, September 22, 2022 - Tubi (www.tubi.tv) today announced it has started production on the Tubi Original Movie SPREAD starring Elizabeth Gillies ("Dynasty"), Harvey Keitel ("The Irishman"), Diedrich Bader ("Veep"), Bryan Craig ("Good Trouble") Teri Polo ("Meet the Parents"), Blake Harrison ("The Inbetweeners"), Tim Rozon ("Schitt's Creek") and Keith Walker ("The Upshaws"). From Cartel Pictures and set to debut in 2023, SPREAD follows an ambitious aspiring journalist (Gillies) who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king (Keitel) and must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed. The film, directed by Ellie Kanner ("Authors Anonymous") and written and co-produced by Buffy Charlet ("Holy Ghost People"), also stars Dia Frampton ("Candy Coated Christmas"), Jonah Platt ("Uncoupled"), and Diora Baird ("Cobra Kai").

"SPREAD is a smart comedy inspired by a true story that shows how an unexpected turn in one's career aspirations can spark a journey of self-discovery," said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. "The fantastic Liz Gillies and the legendary OscarĀ© nominee Harvey Keitel are joined by an outstanding ensemble cast in this upcoming Tubi Original with a wholly unique voice from an incredibly funny and perceptive screenplay."

SPREAD follows Ruby (Gillies), an aspiring journalist and staunch feminist, who has big dreams but has not done much to make them a reality. Broke and desperate, Ruby is forced to swallow her pride and take a temp job at SPREAD, an outdated adult magazine. There she discovers that despite the industry, this is just another office job with bad coffee, stale pastries, and unhappy employees. Planning to escape as soon as possible, Ruby somehow finds herself making a good impression on her boss, Frank Ferretti (Keitel), a former industry king who has been riding on his glory days. Needing a fresh take, Ferretti puts Ruby in charge of designing the company's new app. While trying to hide her status working in the adult business, Ruby steps into her own power and slowly changes her tune on an industry that she might have a chance to change for the better.

Inspired by screenwriter Charlet's real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose to be an editor, SPREAD is executive produced by Elizabeth Gillies, and produced by Stan Spry ("Creepshow"), Eric Scott Woods ("Harland Manor"), and Graem Luis ("Day of the Dead"). Tubi's Lewinson shepherded the project working closely with Charlet in the development process, and Kanner and the production team through the casting process.
