Amazon Prime Press Release
On Thursday, Amazon Freevee released the trailer and key art for its upcoming Original film “Puppy Love,” a new romantic comedy starring Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Grant Gustin (“The Flash”). Produced by BuzzFeed Studios and Lionsgate, “Puppy Love” will premiere on Freevee and also be available to rent or own digitally on Friday, Aug. 18.
After a disastrous first date, wild child Nicole (Hale) and socially anxious Max (Gustin) vow to lose each other’s numbers, until they learn that their dogs found a love match, and now puppies are on the way! The hilariously mismatched Nicole and Max are forced to become responsible co-parents, but may end up finding love themselves.
The film was inspired by BuzzFeed’s viral digital series “Puppyhood,” produced in 2015, which followed a man who found his soulmate in a puppy. “Puppy Love” also features Jane Seymour (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”), Michael Hitchcock (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”), and Nore Davis (“Nore Davis: You Guys are Dope”).
“Puppy Love” is produced by Michael Philip and Jason Moring, and executive produced by Richard Alan Reid, Jonah Peretti, Brian Etting, and Josh Etting. The film is directed by Reid and Nicholas Fabiano and written by Greg Glienna, Peter Stass, Kirsten Guenther, Dan Scheinkman, and Reid. “Puppy Love” is produced by BuzzFeed Studios, through its partnership with Lionsgate.
“Puppy Love” is the fourth film Lionsgate has produced with BuzzFeed in recent years. A key element of Lionsgate’s multiplatform slate strategy involves teaming with partners and filmmakers on projects specifically curated for a variety of distribution strategies. Through these collaborations, Lionsgate is focused on delivering a pipeline of films in a wide range of genres, including action, thriller, comedy, romance and horror, with each tailored toward distribution platforms that best suit its audiences.
