The film’s official logline reads, “A new couple and their families find themselves examining modern love and family dynamics amidst clashing cultures, societal expectations and generational differences in this comedy from Kenya Barris.”
Barris produced and penned the film with Jonah Hill, who is also set to star in the film alongside a deep bench of talent. The star-studded cast includes Lauren London, David Duchovny, Nia Long, Sam Jay, Elliot Gould, Travis Bennett, Molly Gordon, Rhea Perlman, Deon Cole, Andrea Savage, Mike Epps, Emily Arlook, Alani La La Anthony, Bryan Greenberg, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Eddie Murphy.
Kevin Misher is credited as a producer on the title as well, and has previously collaborated with Barris and Murphy on the 2021 film “Coming 2 America.” David Hyman, Matt Dines, Hale Rothstein, Alison Goodwin, Mychelle Deschamps, Andy Berman and Charisse Hewitt-Webster are executive producing the feature.
Though the upcoming project marks Barris’ first time helming a feature-length film, he is not a stranger to the director’s chair. In the past, he’s directed select episodes of the 2020 series “#BlackAF” and his brainchild “Black-ish.”
