Alex Barder’s LA-based Strategic Film Partners has secured US distribution for dramedy A Little Help through Freestyle Releasing.

Jenna Fischer from hit US show The Office and Chris O’Donnell star in the story of a woman who tells a series of bizarre lies in an attempt to look after her son. Michael Weithorn directed and Dena Hysell and Joe Gressis produced.

Freestyle will release in 12 markets in April with the assistance of former New Line marketing head Russell Schwartz.

Barder brokered the deal with Freestyle’s Susan Jackson and Mark Borde and is representing international rights here.
