Premise

Scott has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. As his younger sister heads off to college, Scott, now in his mid-20s, spends his days smoking marijuana and hanging out with his friends.

When his mother starts dating Ray, a loudmouth firefighter from Indianapolis, it sets off a chain of events that forces Scott to grapple with his grief and start to move forward in life.[2]

Cast

Production

On January 29, 2019, it was announced that Universal Pictures was producing a new film directed by Judd Apatow and starring Pete Davidson. The film was set to be written by Apatow, Davidson, and Dave Sirus with Apatow and Sirus also producing the film.[3] Davidson first came to Apatow's attention while working on Trainwreck after he was recommended by Amy Schumer, and he was cast in a cameo role in that film. The story is based on what Davidson's life might have been like if he had not become a comedian.[4]

In April 2019, Bel Powley, Bill Burr and Marisa Tomei were added to the cast.[5][6] Maude Apatow and Pamela Adlon joined in May.[7] In June 2019, Colson Baker, Jimmy Tatro, Ricky Velez, Steve Buscemi, Kevin Corrigan, Domenick Lombardozzi, Mike Vecchione, Moisés Arias, Lou Wilson and Derek Gaines joined the cast of the film.[8][9][10][11][12]

Principal photography began on June 3, 2019,[13][better source needed] in Staten Island and continued during June and July.[14]

Release

It was scheduled to have its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 13, 2020.[15][2] The festival was cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic.[16] It was rescheduled to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 20, 2020,[17] which was also cancelled.[18] Originally scheduled for a theatrical release on June 19, 2020, the film is now scheduled to be released through video on demand on June 12, 2020.[19][20]
