Plan B — the comedy from director Natalie Morales — has found its leads in Kuhoo Verma and Victoria Moroles.
Hulu is behind the project that hails from Counterbalance Entertainment and American High, the latter of which worked with the streaming service on recent releases Big Time Adolescence and The Binge.
Written by Prathi Srinivasan and Joshua Levy, the story takes place after a regrettable first sexual encounter, when a straight-laced high school student and her slacker best friend have 24 hours to hunt down a Plan B pill in America’s heartland.
Harold & Kumar producers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg will produce via Counterbalance. Like the Harold & Kumar features, Plan B is said to a contemporary look at the adventure movie that has a diverse friendship at its center.
Josh Heald and Dina Hillier will also produce for Counterbalance, along with Jeremy Garelick, Will Phelps, Ryan Bennett American High. Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon of LD Entertainment, and Matt Lottman will also produce.
“Over 15 years after making Harold & Kumar, it feels like we’re having déjà vu. Kuhoo and Victoria are such a talented and dynamic duo. We can’t wait for audiences to join them on this hilarious and heartfelt ride,” said Hurwitz and Schlossberg.
Verma, whose credits include Amazon’s The Big Sick and the world premiere of Dave Malloy’s stage musical Octet at the Signature Theatre, is represented by Innovative Artists and Soffer/Namoff Entertainment.
Moroles, whose credits include MTV series Teen Wolf and Disney Channel series Liv and Maddie, is represented by CESD Talent Agency and Vision Entertainment.
