Someone Great is an upcoming American romantic comedy film written and directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. The film stars Gina Rodriguez, Brittany Snow and DeWanda Wise.

It is scheduled for release on April 19, 2019, by Netflix.


An aspiring music journalist, Jenny, has just landed her dream job at an iconic magazine and is about to move to San Francisco. Rather than do long distance, her boyfriend of nine years decides to call it quits. To nurse her broken heart, Jenny gathers up her two best friends, Erin and Blair, for one outrageous last adventure in New York City.



In February 2018, Gina Rodriguez signed on to star in and produce a film to serve as the directorial debut of Jennifer Kaytin Robinson from a screenplay she wrote. The story was described as being about loss, growing up and, above all, the everlasting bond of female friendships.[1] In March 2018, Brittany Snow and DeWanda Wise were cast to portray the close friends of Rodriguez’s character, while Lakeith Stanfield also joined the cast to portray the ex-boyfriend of Rodriguez’s character.[2][3][4] In April 2018, Rosario Dawson joined the cast of the film.[5]

Principal photography on the film began on April 2, 2018.[3]


It is scheduled to be released on April 19, 2019.[6]
