Hulu has announced new casting details on it’s upcoming film “Sex Appeal”, which follows Avery Hansen-White, who doesn’t do things she isn’t excellent at. So when her long-distance boyfriend hints at wanting to take their relationship to the next level at the upcoming STEM conference (“nerd prom”), she sets out to master her sexuality. In this hilarious teen comedy, Avery begins to study the mechanics of love and realizes that relationships require less science and more heart.
The film will star Emmy nominated comedian Margaret Cho (30 Rock, Law & Order SVU), Fortune Feimster (Yes Day, The Netflix Afterparty), Skai Jackson (Jessie), Rebecca Henderson (Russian Doll) and Paris Jackson (Gringo, Lee Daniels’ “Star”). They join previously announced leads Mika Abdalla (Project Mc2) and Jake Short (All Night).
Talia Osteen (The Shabbos Goy) is directing from a script by Tate Hanyok (Transparent, Superstore), who is also executive producing.
Sex Appeal is produced by Jeremy Garelick, Will Phelps and Ryan Bennett for American High, Mark Fasano and Tobias Weymar for Nickel City, and Kendrick Tan for Lit Entertainment.
Sex Appeal is the fifth Hulu Original film from American High following Big Time Adolescence, The Binge, The Ultimate Playlist of Noise, and the upcoming Plan B which is set to be released this summer.
