Twenty-something Hutch thinks image is everything. He fronts like a baller and is too spoiled to get a job. But when his mom kicks him out of the house and he’s forced to work at his uncle’s fat camp, he finds himself supervising an offbeat group of husky boys, who ultimately help him grow up.
Chuck Hayward’s (Netflix’s new series Dear White People) irreverent script is all about embracing your inner loser as the ultimate winner, making Emmy- nominated Jennifer Arnold’s fiction feature directorial debut a willfully offensive adult comedy with no manners and tons of heart.
Acclaimed comic and actor Chris Redd (Pop Star: Never Stop Never Stopping, Netflix’s Disjointed) gives a star turn as Hutch, supported by Anabelle Acosta (Quantico, Ballers), newcomer Michael Cienfuegos, Mel Rodriguez (Last Man On Earth, Getting On), and Vivica A. Fox (Empire, Kill Bill: Volumes 1 and 2).

Macomber, and Eleanor Nett. Valerie Stadler, Peter E. Blacker, and Shane Dawson are executive producers. Cinematography is by Patti Lee with editing by Brad Wilhite. Music by Siddhartha Khosla.
