After helping promote the films of celebrities as co-host of entertainment newsmag "Extra," Maria Menounos is ready to start hyping her own features.
AMC Theaters' independent division has picked up the distribution rights to the comedy "Adventures of Serial Buddies," which the exhib will release in five cities on March 8.
Menounos produced the low-budget film that stars Christopher Lloyd, Beth Behrs, Henry Winkler, Artie Lange, Kathie Lee Gifford, Chris McDonald, Menounos and introduces up-and-coming comics from Improv Olympic and the Groundlings. Menounos' longtime partner Keven Undergaro directed the pic, described as a serial-killer buddy comedy.
A former head writer for MTV, Undergaro developed the film after spending a decade working in the carnival biz.
