Los Angeles-based independent production and distribution company Nicely Entertainment has acquired international rights in the edgy AllBlk legal drama series “Lace.” Season two of the show (14x60’) premieres on June 29 in North America via AMC Networks-owned AllBlk, and Nicely will launch the series to the international market during Mipcom in October.
“Lace” follows the courtroom, boardroom, and bedroom chess matches of Lacey McCullough (Maryam Basir), a prolific lawyer for the rich and powerful in Los Angeles who can make anyone's problems disappear (except her own). As Lacey and her firm navigate clients, cases, and exclusive call-girl (and boy) services, the lines between right and wrong – as well as personal and professional lives – begin to blur.
The show is co-created, and executive produced by Katrina Y. Nelson, Adam Starks and Tracy Grant. Michelle Ebony Hardy serves as executive producer and showrunner, alongside Nelson, in association with Kemy Time Productions.
“We are thrilled to bring ‘Lace’ to the international market. This series offers incredible dramatic story arcs, unlimited episode potential and is ripe for international format opportunities. We are excited to be in business with Kemy Time and cannot wait to secure this with our clients and partners internationally,” said Scott Kirkpatrick, EVP of Distribution and Co-Productions at Nicely Entertainment.
"We are ecstatic to partner with Nicely Entertainment and working with Vanessa Shapiro and Scott Kirkpatrick, who are proven professionals in the entertainment industry. It feels great to have partners who are collaborative and supportive, and share our vision to bring elevated and diverse storytelling to the global audience. We also want to thank Scott Paskoff at Cedar Shore Productions who saw the value in ‘Lace’ and facilitated this international deal," a spokesperson from Kemy Time added.
