Brian O’Shea’s The Exchange has gained international sales rights to the Obvious Child, a comedy that was unveiled at the Sundance Film Festival.
Obvious Child is set to appear in the European Film Market in Berlin, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is the brainchild of Gillian Robespierre, a writer and director who is making her rounds this year in the independent film circuit.
Obvious Child stars Jenny Slate as Donna, a Brooklyn comedian who gets fired and then finds out that she is pregnant. As the clock ticks toward her getting an abortion, she is forced to confront her fears. Sharing with her best friends while making difficult choices, Donna finds the courage to move forward even on shaky ground. Co-starring with Jenny Slate are Polly Draper, Jake Lacy, David Cross, and Gaby Hoffmann, according to Variety.
Slate is most recognized for her work in Parks and Recreation as the character Mona-Lisa. Slate was previously seen on the small screen in Kroll Show, House of Lies, and Bob’s Burgers.
