The Exchange, DDL Entertainment Pact Modern Drama “La Dolce Vita” – Deadline


EXCLUSIVE: The Exchange has announced a licensing and partnership agreement with DDL Entertainment producers Daniele Di Lorenzo and Stefano Corti, who have secured the development rights to a television series adapted from Federico Fellini’s Oscar-winning 1960 classic The good life.

The series will be inspired by themes from the beloved classic, starring Marcello Mastroianni as a tabloid reporter navigating the heady world of late 1950s Rome, but will not be a remake.

The partners said the series will instead be a portrait of the state of contemporary media, culture and celebrity, and the eternal pursuit of the “dream”.

They have yet to assign any writers to the project, but are expected to do so after a strategic development partnership is established.

The good life is an instantly recognizable and beloved classic. We will bring the same boldness, care and beauty to this series,” said The Exchange CEO Brian O’Shea. “We want to create a contemporary series with the same iconic moments that will be talked about for years.”

This is The Exchange’s first series adaptation acquisition as they continue to grow the longtime sales team into a production, finance and development company.

The Exchange is currently selling the worldwide rights to Monica, Third feature film by Andrea Pallaoro presented in competition at Venice.

The Exchange, through its subsidiary NEXT productions, is currently streaming on The Independent with Brian Cox, Jodie Turner-Smith and John Cena and recently announced Untold, directed by Aaron Schinder and starring Nat Wolf.
