Mika Abdalla, Jake Quick To Star In ‘Intercourse Enchantment’ From American Excessive & Hulu – Deadline
Following the releases of Big Time Adolescence, The Binge, and The Ultimate Playlist of Noise, American High is working with Hulu again to bring the next feature, Sex Appeal, a team comedy starred by actors Mika Abdalla (Project Mc2) and Jake Short (the all night).
The producers have recruited first-time director Talia Osteen to direct the picture, based on a script by Tate Hanyok.
The plot follows Avery Hansen-White, who doesn’t do things that she’s not excellent at. When her long-distance friend suggests at the upcoming STEM (“Nerd Prom”) conference that she wants to take their relationship to the next level, she sets out to master her sexuality. Avery begins to study the mechanisms of love and realizes that relationships require less science and more heart.
Jeremy Garelick, Will Phelps and Ryan Bennett produce for American High with Mark Fasano and Tobias Weymar from Nickel City and Kendrick Tan for Lit Entertainment.
American High founder Garelick hired Osteen to direct it after she was impressed by her short film The Shabbos Goy, which was shown at the Just For Laughs Film Festival in 2019. Osteen, again with Greenspan Kohan and 3 Arts Entertainment, also directed the documentary Blindsided and was a writer on the television series Cougar Town.
Abdalla will be re-supervised by Coast to Coast Talent Group, manager Kanica Suy and attorney Matt Rosen, while Short will be re-supervised by More / Medavoy, Greene & Associates and Morris Yorn Barnes.
