Sexy Comedy Feature Film Secures Television Broadcast and is Slated as the American Centerpiece at Upcoming Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on May 1, 2010

March 31, 2010 — The sexy comedy THE PEOPLE I’VE SLEPT WITH, produced by Stanley Yung, written by Koji Steven Sakai and directed by Quentin Lee, has been acquired by Logo TV for U.S. television broadcast rights. The festival favorite hit film will screen as the American Centerpiece at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on May 1, 2010 @ 7PM at the Director’s Guild of America.

"We’re loving The People I’ve Slept With for so many reasons. It’s a refreshingly modern romantic comedy whose characters manage to be simultaneously fierce, unconventional, and highly relatable. And did I mention it’s sexy?” said Marc Leonard, SVP of Programming at Logo.

Sold out festival screenings and audience raves from across the country, THE PEOPLE I’VE SLEPT WITH is a sexy romantic story about a promiscuous young woman (Karin Anna Cheung of Better Luck Tomorrow) who unexpectedly gets pregnant and must find out the identity of the father… now! Together with her gay best friend and co-worker (Wilson Cruz of He’s Just Not That Into You, My So-called Life), the two go on the hunt through her past hook-ups and dates to find the baby’s daddy. The film co-stars Archie Kao (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Lynn Chen (Lakeview Terrace, Saving Face) and screen legend James Shigeta (Flower Drum Song, The Crimson Kimono).

“We are excited to be working with Logo TV as our television partner,” explained director Quentin Lee. “We feel that our film has found a great home.”

A Los Angeles press screening will take place at 11:00AM on Wednesday April 14, 2010 at the Fairbanks Screening Room at Raleigh Studio, 5300 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038.
