SUPER FUN NIGHT

All work and no play makes Kimmie a dull girl. No chance of this young junior attorney being called that. Kimmie Boubier (Rebel Wilson, BRIDESMAIDS) and her two best friends Helen-Alice (Lauren Ash) and Marika (Liza Lapira) have a standing date every Friday night for the last 13 years. They even have a motto for what they call FRIDAY NIGHT FUN NIGHT: "Always together! Always Inside!" Kimmie's sister Jazmine (Ashley Tisdale) thinks having a real life is within Kimmie's grasp, if only she'd ditch her awkward high school friends. But Kimmie is forever loyal to her pals. However, Kimmie's recent promotion throws a monkey wrench into their Friday Night Fun Night (#723 to be exact), an epic cat-sitting extravaganza. Not only is she now working with her idol, "Lady Lawyer of the Year" Felicity Vanderstone (Kelen Coleman. NEWSROOM), but she even meets a dashingly handsome British attorney named Richard Lovell (Kevin Bishop) who invites her to his party at a trendy New York club. Determined to spend quality time with Richard and heed Felicity's advice about the importance of networking, Kimmie sets out to convince her friends to take Super Fun Night on the road...and so a new tradition is born: Friday Night SUPER FUN NIGHT. New York City may never be the same. Executive Produced by Conan O'Brien, David Kissinger, and John Riggi, comedian Rebel Wilson writes and stars in this outrageous comedy that chronicles three lifelong friends figuring out how to fit in outside of their comfort zone for, SUPER FUN NIGHT.
