Actress Natalie Morales (Stuber) is set to make her directorial debut, as she has been tapped to direct the comedy Plan B for the Disney-owned Hulu.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film written by Prathi Srinivasan (Bunk’d) and Joshua Levy (iZombie) takes place after a regrettable first sexual encounter, when a straight-laced high school student and her slacker best friend have 24 hours to hunt down a Plan B pill in America’s heartland.
Plan B will start production this October in Syracuse, New York.
Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, Josh Heald and Dina Hillier of Counterbalance Entertainment will produce, along with Jeremy Garelick, Will Phelps, Ryan Bennett of American High, Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon of LD Entertainment as well as Matt Lottman.
Plan B will be the latest team-up for the Syracuse-based American High and Hulu, joining Big Time Adolescence, starring Pete Davidson, and feature comedy The Binge, starring Vince Vaughn and Skyler Gisondo.
Morales may be directing her first feature film, but she is no stranger behind the camera as she in multiple episodes of HBO’s Room 104 from creators Jay and Mark Duplass. Her acting credits include Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Parks and Recreation, Santa Clarita Diet, Stuber, and will next be seen in The Little Things also starring Denzel Washington and Rami Malek.
