The film is directed by Michael Showalter (Hello, My Name Is Doris, Wet Hot American Summer) and stars Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano and Anupam Kher. The movie follows a Pakistan-born comedian and an American grad student as they are dealing with their cultural differences as their relationship grows. Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) also co-wrote the screenplay with Emily V. Gordon. Judd Apatow (The 40-Year Old Virgin, Trainwreck, Knocked Up) is producing the project with Barry Mendel (The Sixth Sense, Bridesmaids, Munich). Andrews has previously collaborated with Apatow on numerous features, including Funny People, Bridesmaids, The Five-Year Engagement and the TV shows Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared.
