Have you got a Prison Penpal?

We have recently been contacted by Paramount Home Media who are looking for couple who have been penpals before striking up a romance. Do you fit the bill for what they are looking for?

 Kate Winslett, Josh Brolin, Labor Day

“I’m contacting you on behalf of Paramount Home Media with a proposition –  we are working on the DVD release of the film Labor Day, which stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin and is released on Blu-ray and DVD in early August. I’ve attached a press release.
The film centers around a romance between Kate’s character ‘Adele’ and Josh’s character ‘Frank’ – a convict who has escaped from prison over the Labor Day weekend. He is recaptured, but neither of them ever forget the encounter and are reunited on his eventual release.
To secure publicity for the DVD release in the UK we are looking for real life case-studies of couples who have struck up a romance while one party was in prison. We would need these couple(s) to be willing to provide their names and photographs and to be interviewed by members of the press (websites, magazines or newspapers).”


If you are interested in speaking to them, let us know and we will put you in touch!
