The upcoming Hulu original film starring Sandra Oh and Awkwafina has begun production and is set to premiere in 2023.

The comedy, which has not yet been titled, follows the lives of two estranged sisters who are forced to come together to pay off their mother’s gambling debts.

Anne, played by Awkwafina, is a brilliant, game show-obsessed woman, who must team up with her train-wreck sister, Jenny, played by Oh.

The two set off on a wild journey across the country in an effort to both find Anne’s stolen puppy and win cash prizes by turning Anne into a game show champion.
