Friendsgiving Trailer highlights star-studded comedy
Saban Films has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming dramedy Friendsgiving featured a star-studded cast led by Malin Åkerman (Billions), Kat Dennings (Dollface) and Jane Seymour (The War with Grandpa), which can be viewed in the player below!
Written and directed by Nicol Paone in her directorial debut, the story centers on Abby, who is looking forward to a laid-back Thanksgiving with her best friend Molly. But the friends’ plans for a quiet turkey dinner go up in smoke when they’re joined by Molly’s new boyfriend and her flamboyant mother. Throw in some party-crashers including Molly’s old flame, a wannabe shaman, and a trio of Fairy Gay Mothers, and it’s a recipe for a comically chaotic holiday no one will ever forget–even if they wanted to!
Alongside Åkerman, Dennings and Seymour, the ensemble cast for the film includes Aisha Tyler (Criminal Minds), Chelsea Peretti (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Christine Taylor (Search Party), Deon Cole (Grown-ish), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Wanda Sykes (Black-ish) and Margaret Cho (Over the Moon). The Billions star is also making her feature producer debut, partnering with Red Hour Productions’ Ben Stiller (Escape at Dannemora), Nicky Weinstock and Haroon Saleem.
Friendsgiving is set to hit select theaters and digital platforms and VOD on October 23.
