Cast includes Tom Pelphrey, Melissa Archer and Robert Vaughn, with Christopher Lloyd, Jerry Stiller, Wayne Knight and Dick Cavett also appearing.

Theatrical release is skedded for Oct. 12 with a day-and-date release on VOD. Klass’ novel of the same title will be released by Arcade Publishing Oct. 1.
