Prime Video Begins Production on “The Sticky” Featuring Margo Martindale & Chris Diamantopoulos



Prime Video has started production on a new series called “The Sticky,” which is based on a true story dubbed as the “Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist” that took place in 2011. In the heist, $18 million worth of maple syrup, which accounts for about 70% of the global supply, was stolen. The new series will star Margo Martindale, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Guillaume Cyr and will be available exclusively on Prime Video in 2024 in over 240 countries and territories.

The story of “The Sticky” revolves around Ruth Landry, played by Margo Martindale, who is a tough maple syrup farmer that is tired of the bureaucratic conventions that constrain her country’s identity. Her farm, her comatose husband, and her freedom are being threatened by the very bureaucracy she is trying to escape. With the help of Remy Bouchard, played by Guillaume Cyr, and Mike Byrne, played by Chris Diamantopoulos, Ruth changes her fate by stealing millions of dollars worth of maple syrup. In doing so, she transforms the fate of her community.

The series is produced by Blumhouse Television, Megamix, Comet Pictures, and Canadian producers Sphere Media, with the participation of Oscar-winning executive producer Jamie Lee Curtis as a guest star. The production will take place in and around Montreal with Canadian directors Michael Dowse and Joyce Wong.

Creators and executive producers are Brian Donovan and Ed Herro; Jonathan Levine and Gillian Bohrer for Megamix; Jamie Lee Curtis for Comet Pictures; Josée Vallée and Bruno Dubé for Sphere Media, Inc.; Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, and Chris Dickie for Blumhouse Television; and Michael Dowse.
