Enda Loughman & Mike Ahern, the writer-directors behind the supernatural comedy Extra Ordinary, which just screened in competition to sold out audiences at the SXSW Film Festival, have signed with 1stAveMachine and The Gotham Group for literary management.
The duo’s feature directorial debut follows Rose, a mostly sweet and mostly lonely small-town driving instructor, who must use her supernatural talent to save the daughter of Martin (also mostly sweet and lonely) from a washed-up rockstar who is using her in a satanic pact that will reignite his fame. Maeve Higgins, Barry Ward, Will Forte & Claudia O’Doherty make up the cast.
Ahern and Loughman are a comedy writing and directing duo based out of Ireland who have been directing award-winning commercials internationally for years. They are also currently writing an original screenplay for Aardman Animations.
1stAveMachine has a rich history with Ahern and Loughman, also known as D.A.D.D.Y., in commercial production. The duo’s expanded relationship into literary representation is the latest collaboration between The Gotham Group and 1stAveMachine, who last year announced a joint venture to help develop 1stAveMachine’s deep talent pool of directors and creatives into other platforms including film and television, and to use 1stAveMachine’s resources to support Gotham’s clients. 1stAveMachine’s management division is headed by Ross Siegel.
