#FIRSTLOOK: PRIME VIDEO’S “THE STICKY” BEGINS PRODUCTION IN QUEBEC
Today, Prime Video announced the start of production on comedy series The Sticky in Quebec. Margo Martindale, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Guillaume Cyr star in the English-language series inspired by the true story dubbed the “Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist,” which made headlines around the world in 2011 when 70% of the global maple syrup supply—about $18 million (CAD) worth—was stolen. The series will film in and around Montreal with Canadian directors Michael Dowse (Goon, Stuber) and Joyce Wong (Wexford Plaza, Sort of). The Sticky will be available exclusively on Prime Video in 240 countries and territories worldwide in 2024.
The Sticky revolves around Ruth Landry (Margo Martindale), a tough, supremely competent maple syrup farmer who’s had it with being hemmed in by the polite, bureaucratic conventions native to her country’s identity. Especially now that that very bureaucracy is threatening to take away everything she loves: Her farm, her comatose husband, and her right to freedom. With the help of Remy Bouchard (Guillaume Cyr), a mild-mannered security guard, and Mike Byrne (Chris Diamantopoulos), a low-level mobster, Ruth changes her fate—and transforms the future of her community—with the theft of millions of dollars’ worth of maple syrup.
The Sticky is produced by Blumhouse Television, Megamix, Comet Pictures, and Sphere Media. Creators and executive producers are Brian Donovan and Ed Herro; Jonathan Levine and Gillian Bohrer for Megamix; Jamie Lee Curtis for Comet Pictures; Josée Vallée and Bruno Dubé for Sphere Media, Inc.; Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, and Chris Dickie for Blumhouse Television; and Michael Dowse. Lauren Grant serves as co-executive producer. Russell Goldman is an associate producer for Comet Pictures.
Cyr is represented by Maxime & Alexis Vanasse at MVA. Dowse is represented in the U.S. by UTA, Fourth Wall Management, and Paul Hastings, and Great North Artists Management in Toronto. Wong is represented by CAA, Aaron Brown at Avalon Management, and Great North Artists Management in Toronto.
