Lionsgate, Hulu partner to acquire Jeff Baena’s ‘Joshy’
MUMBAI: US media company Lionsgate and Hulu have joined forces to acquire the North American rights to Jeff Baena’s ‘Joshy’, featuring an ensemble cast including Thomas Middleditch, Adam Pally, Alex Ross Perry, Nick Kroll, Brett Gelman, and Jenny Slate.
The film will be released on Lionsgate’s specialty film distribution label, Lionsgate Premiere, and will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu following its theatrical run.
“We’re proud to expand our multi-faceted relationship with Hulu that already includes four original television series, our partnership in Epix and licensing of our content to their platform. The extension of our alliance into film acquisitions signals a new growth opportunity for both companies and ‘Joshy’ is a great movie to kick it off. Jeff Baena and his creative team have made a hilarious and irreverent film that we believe will resonate with moviegoers and online audiences alike,” said Lionsgate president of worldwide television and digital distribution Jim Packer
‘Joshy’ is a comedy about the emotionally inept nature of male bonding. Each character is his own fragile mess, covering up with hard partying and games. After his engagement ends badly, Josh decides to take advantage of his bachelor-party plans in Ojai, California, with the few friends still willing to join him. Focused on drugs and their own hangups, his self-absorbed friends refuse to confront the elephant in the room and ask Josh how he’s feeling. As welcome and unwelcome guests stop by, Josh will attempt to find some closure over this weekend with the guys.
