“Sex and Sunsets” centers on a failed writer-cum-dishwasher, played by Kwanten, made famous for his many flaws and shortcomings in a blog called “Why You Suck,” written by his ex-wife. He meets the girl of his dreams, played by Canning, on the day she is marrying the perfect man.
O’Hara has been set to play Canning’s eccentric, estranged mother.
