EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Prediger & Jess Weixler’s 10 Things You Should Know About APARTMENT TROUBLESMarch 27, 2015
APARTMENT TROUBLES is a story about how Olivia and Nicole are codependent roommates who are definitely going to make it; they're just not sure how. When they get evicted from their shoebox apartment in Manhattan--conceptual art just doesn't cover the rent--they boldly take off to L.A. for the promise of sunshine. As one door slams shut, another opens--a tarot card reading later, the duo decide to take their performance art sensibilities to the mainstream by auditioning for a reality TV talent show.
This madcap buddy film marks the screenwriting and directorial debuts of costars and real-life friends Jennifer Prediger (RED FLAG) and Jess Weixler (TEETH). Strong comedic performances by Megan Mullally (WILL & GRACE), Jeffrey Tambor (TRANSPARENT) and Will Forte (LAST MAN ON EARTH, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) reveal the vulnerability behind even their most bizarre behavior. APARTMENT TROUBLES (Gravitas Ventures) is available today!
