The upcoming Hulu original film starring Sandra Oh and Awkwafina has begun production and is set to premiere in 2023.
The comedy, which has not yet been titled, follows the lives of two estranged sisters who are forced to come together to pay off their mother’s gambling debts.
Anne, played by Awkwafina, is a brilliant, game show-obsessed woman, who must team up with her train-wreck sister, Jenny, played by Oh.
The two set off on a wild journey across the country in an effort to both find Anne’s stolen puppy and win cash prizes by turning Anne into a game show champion.
Shot in L.A. and New Orleans, the production is scheduled to wrap up on July 22 and will officially premiere next year on several streaming platforms globally: Hulu in the U.S., Star Plus in Latin America and Disney Plus in other countries.
The film’s director Jessica Yu is known for NBC’s “This is Us,” Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why,” ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and numerous documentaries.
Producers include the movie’s stars, Awkwafina and Oh, along with actors Will Ferrell, Jason Schwartzman, Holland Taylor and Tony Hale.
