Sex, Death and Bowling

Ally Walker’s (“Sons of Anarchy”) directorial debut “Sex, Death and Bowling” has found a home with Monterey Media. The distribution company has acquired all North American rights to the indie and will release it in theaters this fall.

Written and directed by Walker, the dramedy stars Adrian Grenier (“Entourage”), Selma Blair (“Hellboy”), Bailey Chase (“Longmire”), Drea de Matteo (“The Sopranos”) and Joshua Rush (“Mr. Peabody and Sherman”).

The official synopsis reads: “Eli McAllister (Rush) is on a quest. He is also setting out to win The Fiesta Cup, a local bowling tournament. Joining him is his famous fashion designer uncle, Sean McAllister (Grenier). Sean hasn’t spent time with his family – specifically his father – for years. But now he has come home to bid farewell to his older brother, Eli’s father. Thrown into the tournament as his ailing brother’s substitute, Sean clashes with his father as old wounds are opened.”

“Ally has done a wonderful turn in her feature directing debut giving us a compelling story, a family and a heart-warming piece of Americana,” commented Scott Mansfield, Managing Partner of Monterey Media.

The film will be released sometime this fall.
