Disney has announced that production on an untitled original sister comedy from 20th Century Studios began last week in Los Angeles, and it will also be filming in New Orleans, wrapping production July 22nd 2023.

The new film will premiere in 2023 as a Hulu Original in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.

The movie stars Golden Globe winner Awkwafina (“The Farewell”), Golden Globe and SAG Award winner Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”), Jason Schwartzman (“The French Dispatch”), Emmy winner Holland Taylor (“The Practice”), Emmy winner Tony Hale (“Veep”) and Will Ferrell, and is directed by Jessica Yu (“This is Us,” “The Morning Show”), written by Jen D’Angelo (“Hocus Pocus 2”) and produced by Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum (“Booksmart”) for Gloria Sanchez Productions, Maggie Haskins, Itay Reiss, Jen D’Angelo, Awkwafina, and Sandra Oh. Alex Brown (“Hustlers”) and Erika Hampson (“The Photograph”) are executive producers.

The comedy follows a brilliant but tightly wound, gameshow-obsessed young woman, Anne (Awkwafina) and her estranged, train-wreck of a sister Jenny (Oh), who must work together to help cover their mother’s gambling debts. When Anne’s beloved dog is kidnapped, they set out on a wild, cross-country trek to get the cash the only way they know how: by turning Anne into a bona-fide gameshow champion.


No release date has yet been announced, but expect more details to be revealed next year.
