Imagicomm Greenlights Blue Ridge Series


Imagicomm Entertainment has greenlit the development of a new action-crime series based on the 2020 film Blue Ridge for its Cowboy Way FAST channel.

In the film, former Green Beret Justin Wise leaves his dangerous life to be near his ex-wife and young daughter and becomes sheriff of their small, sleepy town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. His life is disrupted when a murder refuels a longtime feud between two local families.

The first episode of Blue Ridge will debut in late 2023 or early 2024. Production is currently underway in the Greater Charlotte, North Carolina area.

“The film introduced several story arcs perfect for episodic development,” said Jonathan Collins, VP of digital media distribution at Imagicomm. “The series expands the film’s storyline and reprises the role of Johnathon Schaech (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, That Thing You Do!) as Sheriff Justin Wise. With the addition of new characters, each episode will take viewers deeper into the mystery, intrigue and suspense.”
