Jenna Fischer gets ‘A Little Help’

Michael J. Weithorn to write, direct dramedy

Jenna Fischer will topline the indie dramedy “A Little Help,” which marks the feature directorial debut of “King of Queens” creator Michael J. Weithorn.

Story centers on a recently widowed single mom who reconnects with an old flame — her sister’s husband. Weithorn penned the screenplay.

Secret Handshake Entertainment’s Dena Hysell and Joe Gressis are producing.

“A Little Help” will begin shooting in January in Georgia.

Fischer, whose bigscreen credits include “Walk Hard” and “Blades of Glory,” is shooting the fifth season of NBC’s “The Office.” Most recently she appeared onscreen in Dimension’s “The Promotion” alongside John C. Reilly and Seann William Scott. She will co-star alongside Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon and Mary-Louise Parker in “Solitary Man,” which begins shooting this week in New York.
