In Breaking News in Yuba County, after her husband goes missing, Sue Buttons, an underappreciated suburban wife, gets a taste of being a local celebrity as she embarks on a search to find him. She quickly finds herself in over her head, dodging cops, criminals, and local reporters all aiming to uncover the truth. After being overlooked for so long, Sue goes to exaggerated lengths to prolong her “15 minutes of fame” and keep the truth from coming out.

The R-rated film will be led by Allison Janney (I, Tonya), Mila Kunis (Bad Moms), Awkwafina (The Farewell, Ocean’s 8), and Regina Hall (Girls’ Trip). It will also feature Wanda Sykes (Evan Almighty), Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear), Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), Jimmi Simpson (Westworld), Clifton Collins Jr. (Thief), Bridget Everett, Dominic Burgess (Ma), Keong Sim (Dead To Me), Chris Lowell (GLOW), with Matthew Modine (And the Band Played On) and Ellen Barkin (Switch).
