Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), Neil Casey (Ghostbusters), Dot-Marie Jones (Glee), and Janicza Bravo (Camping) are attached to star in Greener Grass, a film from writing and directing duo Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe. The helmers will also star in the pic, based on their SXSW short film. It’s set in a timeless suburbia and tells the story of soccer moms Jill (DeBoer) and Lisa (Luebbe). While their children compete on the soccer field, the pair competes in the bleachers in this dark comedy where every adult wears braces on their straight teeth, couples coordinate meticulously pressed outfits, and coveted family members become pawns in the ultimate competition for acceptance. Mary Holland (Veep), Jim Cummings (Thunder Road), Lauren Adams (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Asher Miles Fallica (Ozark), Julian Hilliard (The Haunting of Hill House), and John Milhiser (SNL) co-star. Natalie Metzger is producing Greener Grass, which is currently shooting in LA. Executive producers are Gulp Splash Productions and Vanishing Angle. DeBoer and Luebbe are repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners; Bennett by UTA; Casey and Carden by UTA and Rise Management; Jones by TCA Management; Bravo by UTA and Kevin Rowe.
