Michael Cera, Brett Gelman Starring in Dark Comedy ‘Lemon’

Brett Gelman, Michael Cera, and Judy Greer are starring in the independent dark comedy “Lemon” from Burn Later Productions and Killer Films.

“Lemon” marks Janicza Bravo’s feature debut. She and Gelman co-wrote the script, in which Gelman plays an out-of-work actor who tries to stop his life from unraveling after he’s dumped by his blind girlfriend, portrayed by Greer.

The cast includes Nia Long, Fred Melamed, Shiri Appleby, Rhea Perlman, David Paymer, Gillian Jacobs, Megan Mullally, Martin Starr, Jeff Garlin, and Marla Gibbs. “Lemon” has been shooting in Los Angeles.

Lemon is produced by Paul Bernon, Sam Slater, and David Bernon from Burn Later Productions, Han West (“One Night”), and Houston King (“Results”). Executive producers are Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa of Killer Films (“Carol”), Bravo and Gelman.

Rowan Riley of Burn Later Productions is co-producing. Financing was arranged by ICM Partners and UTA, which are representing the film’s rights.

Gelman’s credits include the “Dinner With Brett Gelman” series, “Married,” and Comedy Central’s “Another Period,” which has been renewed for a third season.

Bravo’s work has screened at Carnegie Hall, Sundance, SXSW, and Tribeca. Burn Later’s releases include “Drinking Buddies,” “Results,” and “The Intervention,” which was the closing night film last month at Outfest.

Bravo is represented by UTA, Odenkirk Provissiero, and Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler & Feldman. Gelman is represented by ICM Partners, Authentic, and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams. Burn Later is represented by ICM Partners, and Latham & Watkins.
