Jenna Laurenzo to Star in, Direct and Write Coming-Out Comedy ‘Lez Bomb’

Sprockefeller Pictures has come on board to produce Jenna Laurenzo’s coming-out comedy “Lez Bomb,” with shooting starting in December.

Laurenzo, who gained notice with her short “Girl Night Stand,” is starring and directing from her own script. “Lez Bomb” is a family ensemble comedy about a still-closeted young woman who brings her girlfriend home for Thanksgiving, only to have her coming-out plans thwarted by the unexpected arrival of her male roommate.

A.B. Farrelly (“Trading Yesterday”), Brandon Micheal Hall, Elaine Hendrix, and Caitlin Mehner (“Rebel in the Rye”) round out the cast. Sprockefeller Pictures’ Martin Sprock (“Man Down”) and Rob Moran are producing, along with Ryan R. Johnson (“Z for Zachariah”).

“Girl Night Stand” centers on a young woman that questions her sexuality after her first one-night stand with another woman. The short debuted on AfterEllen.com, reaching nearly 2 million views.

“I wrote ‘Lez Bomb’ because it’s the movie I wanted to see when I was coming out but couldn’t find,” Laurenzo said. “It’s a story about family, love, and the pursuit of happiness, despite life not matching initial expectations, and learning to not only accept, but embrace reality as it lands with a sense of humor.”

“Lez Bomb” was selected as a 2015 recipient of Big Vision Empty Wallet’s “Kickstart Diversity” incentive program, which supports  diversity in storytelling by women, people of color, and people in the LGBT community.

Sprockefeller Pictures’ recent films include “Nine Eleven,” starring Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, and Luis Guzman; “American Dresser,” toplined by Bruce Dern, Tom Berenger, and Penelope Ann Miller; and “Replicate” with Cam Gigandet.

Laurenzo’s upcoming projects include a feature she’s developing with Depth of Field Productions. She is represented by APA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Farrelly is repped by Muse Management. Hall is represented by Paradigm Agency. Hendrix is repped by Innovative Artists and McKeon Myones Management. Mehner is represented by KMR Talent and McKeon Myones Management.
