Netflix has released the official trailer and key art for Iliza Shlesinger’s (Spenser Confidential) rom-com Good on Paper, written by Shlesinger who also stars in the film alongside Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars). The movie was directed by Kimmy Gatewood (The Baby-Sitters Club) and will debut on the streamer on June 23, 2021.
“I wanted to write something funny, unique, and relatable. A comedian turns real life into art, so I shared my bizarre story and had fun doing it. What started as a cathartic release became a passion project that I put a lot of comedy and heart into,” said Shlesinger.
In the film, Andrea Singer always put her stand-up career first, and while dating came easy, love wasn’t a priority… that is until she meets Dennis, a quirky nerd with disarming charm who coaxes her into letting her guard down. Her best friend Margot isn’t convinced he’s all he seems and she urges Andrea to embark on a wild goose chase to uncover who Dennis really is.
