[13 mins. 25 secs.] In this special episode of the podcast I welcome the director and the producer of the new indie Support The Girls. Back for his third appearance on the podcast (he was on Episode 150 discussing Computer Chess & and Episode 296 discussing Results) is director Andrew Bujalski as well as his frequent collaborator producer Houston King (Lemon, Hearts Beat Loud) who makes his first appearance of the podcast.
Support the Girls is about Lisa (Regina Hall), the general manager of Double Whammies, a sports bar that features skimpily dressed waitresses. Always nurturing and protective of her staff, she soon faces one trying day that tests her optimism at every turn. The dramedy also stars James LeGros, Brooklyn Decker, Haley Lu Richardson & Shayna McHayle.
Support the Girls is now in its second week theatrically screening in many major cities including the IFC Center in New York, the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn, as well as at the Nuart Theater in Los Angeles. As it widens its theatrical, it has also become available on demand both on iTunes as well as on cable. The film is being distributed by Magnolia Pictures.
