A brand new R-rated dark comedy film, “The Drop”, is coming to Hulu on January 13th 2023. This brand-new film has been directed by Sarah Adina Smith (Birds Of Paradise”) and stars Anna Konkle (“PEN15″) and Jermaine Fowler (“Coming 2 America”).
“The Drop” follows Lex (Konkle) and Mani (Fowler), who seem like a happily married couple, running a bakery together and actively trying to have a baby. Their trip to a friend’s destination wedding at a tropical island seems like a great opportunity to keep trying to conceive, all while reconnecting with their successful group of friends.
The good vibes are quickly cut short, however, when, upon their arrival at the tropical destination, Lex tries to hold the baby of her friend (Search Party‘s Aparna Nancherla), who’s getting married, and drops the baby in full view of her friends. This distressing event immediately puts a damper on the nuptial celebrations. Recriminations, passive-aggressive behaviour and uncomfortable tension permeates this convening of friends and threatens to further disrupt Lex and Mani’s future.
Also starring in the film are Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Utkarsh Ambudkar (Brittany Runs a Marathon), Elisha Henig (The Sinner), Jennifer Lafleur (Nope), Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project) and Robin Thede (A Black Lady Sketch Show).
Sarah Adina Smith and Joshua Leonard co-wrote the script and produced the film alongside Jonako Donley, Mel Eslyn, Shuli Harel, Tim Headington and Lia Buman. Mark and Jay Duplass are also executive producers of the film.
An international release for Disney+ hasn’t yet been announced.
