Bella Thorne’s About To Get “High” In ‘Perfect High’, A Lifetime Original Movie!

bella

Vancouver-based Sepia Films and LA-based Just Singer Entertainment have announced the start of production on PERFECT HIGH, a Lifetime movie set in the disturbing world of teenage heroin use.

Inspired by the shocking rise in heroin addiction among suburban teenagers, PERFECT HIGH stars Bella Thorne (Blended; Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day; Shake it Up) as Amanda, a star high school dancer who starts using prescription painkillers after being sidelined by a knee injury. Feeling neglected and isolated, Amanda is adopted by an ultra cool group of friends, including Carson (Israel Broussard, The Bling Ring), Riley (Daniela Bobadilla, Anger Management) and Nate (Ross Butler, Teen Beach Movie). She quickly becomes part of their inner circle, which means sharing her pills, having regular “pharm” parties, and falling in love for the first time. As their drug use inevitably spirals into addiction, Amanda and her friends resort to lying, stealing and worse to fund their habit. Their lives are forever altered when a classmate begins selling them heroin disguised as a cheaper painkiller from Mexico.

Directed by Vanessa Parise (Jack and Jill vs. the World; Kiss the Bride) and written by Anne-Marie Hess, PERFECT HIGH is being produced by Sepia Films’ Tina Pehme and Kim C. Roberts (The Games Maker, which just premiered at Sundance; In their Skin; A Shine of Rainbows) in collaboration with executive producer Sheri Singer of Just Singer Entertainment (Disney’s upcoming Invisible Sister, Girl vs. Monster; Halloweentown Franchise).

Production on PERFECT HIGH is scheduled to run February 1 – 22, 2015 in Victoria, BC, with Lifetime premiering this summer in the US and Super Channel/Shaw taking Canada. A&E is selling foreign territories.

Founded in 2003 by producer Tina Pehme, entertainment attorney Kim Roberts and director Vic Sarin, Vancouver-based Sepia Films is a feature film production company specializing in international co-productions. Their output includes such diverse theatrical fare as The Games Maker (Joseph Fiennes, David Mazouz and Ed Asner) which premiered last week at Sundance, the thriller In Their Skin (Selma Blair, Josh Close, Rachel Miner and James D’Arcy) which premiered at Tribeca 2012, the award-winning A Shine Of Rainbows (Connie Nielsen, Aidan Quinn) which premiered at TIFF 2010, and 2007’s Partition, starring Jimi Mistry, Neve Campbell, Kristen Kreuk, and Irrfan Khan.

Sepia Films also produced a series of TV movies with Lifetime known as the “Nightmare” franchise, including 2014’s A Wife’s Nightmare starring Jennifer Beals, Dylan Neale and Spencer List. A Daughter’s Nightmare, starring Emily Osment, Gregg Sulkin and Paul Johansson; 2013’s A Sister’s Nightmare; and 2012’s A Mother’s Nightmare.

Emmy Award-winning producer Sheri Singer launched Just Singer Entertainment in 2000. The company’s primary focus is developing and producing movies and series for broadcast and cable networks. Singer has produced 28 movies, miniseries, and microseries in addition to PERFECT HIGH, She has produced 15 movies for the Disney Channel, including Good Luck Charlie: It’s Christmas and two highly rated perennials, the four- movie Halloweentown franchise and Luck of the Irish. The latter two films are part of the permanent collection at the Paley Center for Media. She is currently in pre-production on her 16th movie for Disney Channel.
