Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal’s new documentary Exporting Raymond opened over the weekend and grossed an estimated $36,010 from 13 theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and other markets for a location average of $2,770 reports THR.
Directed by, written by and starring Phil Rosenthal, the synopsis: Phil Rosenthal created one of the most successful sitcoms of all-time, “Everybody Loves Raymond.” He was a bona-fide expert in his craft. And then…. the Russians called.
In the hilarious EXPORTING RAYMOND, a genuine fish-out-of-water comedy that could only exist in real life, Phil travels to Russia to help adapt his beloved sitcom for Russian television. The Russians don’t share his tastes. They don’t seem to share his sense of humor. But what Phil did discover was a real comedy, filled with unique characters and situations that have to be seen to be believed. An audience award winner at multiple film festivals across the country, EXPORTING RAYMOND proves that even if you’ve never seen “Everybody Loves Raymond”, you’ll still enjoy this wildly entertaining film.
