Inception Media Group Acquires "The Space Between" Starring Academy Award® and Golden Globe Nominated Actress Melissa Leo

USA Network to Premiere Film on September 11 to Mark Ten-Year Anniversary of World Trade Center attacks

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - January 14, 2011) -  Inception Media Group, LLC, a diversified media company specializing in the production, acquisition and distribution of entertainment content, today announced it has acquired the rights to "The Space Between," a heart-wrenching story about a 10-year old Pakistani boy and an American flight attendant who meet the day of the World Trade Center attacks.

Inception Media Group has acquired all North American rights to the film, including broadcast, theatrical, home entertainment, digital and non-theatrical, from TSB Films, LLC.

Inception Media Group has sold the U.S. broadcast rights to "The Space Between" to USA Network, which will premiere the film on September 11 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks. This will mark the first time the film has been broadcast on television.

"The Space Between" was written and directed by Travis Fine ("The Others"), and stars Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominated actress Melissa Leo ("The Fighter," "Frozen River").

"Travis has made a beautiful, moving film and his exceptional cast has delivered performances that are powerful, touching and memorable," said Andy Reimer, partner, Inception Media Group, LLC. "We are very pleased that USA Network is giving this special film such a great opportunity to be seen and appreciated by such a large audience."

In "The Space Between," Montine McLeod (Leo), a lonely flight attendant, and Omar (Anthony Keyvan, "Lost," "iCarly"), a 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy, are on a plane that is grounded in Longview, TX the morning of 9/11/01. But when Montine discovers that Omar's father works in the World Trade Center she is forced to drive the boy back home to his uncertain future in New York. As they journey across America's vast heartland in the hours and days immediately following the terrorist attacks, Montine and Omar help each other discover the importance of tolerance, redemption, acceptance and hope.

The film will offer viewers a look back at the events through a different but important lens and serve as a reminder that, in the aftermath of the attacks, there was a sense of hope found not only in the comfort of loved ones, but also in the very powerful connections that so many found with complete strangers.
