Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira star in the Berlanti Schechter Films and PICTURESTART Film Directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg
LOS ANGELES, CA – August 12, 2020 – HBO Max and WarnerMax’s original feature film, Unpregnant, adapted from the young adult HarperCollins novel by authors Jenni Hendriks (How I Met Your Mother) and Ted Caplan (music editor for The Hate U Give, The Greatest Showman), is set to premiere on the platform Thursday, September 10. From
Berlanti Schechter Films and PICTURESTART, the film offers a mix of humor and grounded human emotion as it tackles complicated friendships and the difficult road to adulthood, all while in a stolen Trans-Am. Emmy® winner Rachel Lee Goldenberg (Valley Girl, A Deadly Adoption, The Mindy Project) directs the motion picture and also wrote the screenplay with authors Hendriks & Caplan, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (Someone Great), and William Parker.
In Unpregnant, seventeen-year-old Veronica (Haley Lu Richardson) never thought she’d want to fail a test—that is, until she finds herself staring at a piece of plastic with a blue plus. With a promising college-bound future now disappearing before her eyes, Veronica considers a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. This never-taken-lightly decision leads her on a 1000 mile hilarious road trip to New Mexico over three days with her ex-best friend, Bailey (Barbie Ferreira) where they discover sometimes the most important choice you’ll make in life is who your friends are.
The film also stars Alex MacNicoll, Breckin Meyer, Giancarlo Esposito, Sugar Lyn Beard, pop star Betty Who, Mary McCormack, Denny Love, Ramona Young and Kara Royster.

The Hunger Games franchise, La La Land). Executive producers are Michael Sledd (I, Tonya), Michael McGrath (Batwoman), Lucy Kitada (The Babysitters Club) and Jessica Switch (Nerve).
