Lost & Found, a new television pilot from writer/director Haroula Rose, will be world premiering at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival as part of Tribeca TV. The first public showing at Tribeca is scheduled for April 23, followed by a screening at the Bentonville Film Festival, co-founded by Geena Davis, on May 4.
Lost & Found stars Melonie Diaz, Terence Nance, Will Janowitz, Jennifer Lafleur, Abby Wathen, Avi Rothman, Peter Thomson, Nick Thurston and Laura Lee Botsacos, and was produced by Valeria Lopez and executive produced by Melonie Diaz and Haroula Rose. The series follows a group of friends as they try to navigate the absurdities of life in modern day Los Angeles, where the backdrop serves as a metaphorical creative space that allows the characters to transform themselves as much as the city evolves around them.
Rose’s passion for telling real stories about complex, empathetic characters shines through in the pilot episode, which follows a couple as they decide to have an “unwedding” to signify their conscious transition to divorce. Mixed emotions transpire among the rest of the cast as they deal with confronting the issues in their own relationships.
Last year, Rose’s film Wedding Dress premiered on IndieWire after winning numerous awards on the festival icrcuit. Wedding Dress is the second installment of the True Love Trilogy, a trio of films written and directed by Rose and produced by Glass Bead Films. The films center around three disparate, ordinary people who suddenly find themselves plunged into extraordinary circumstances.
