UCB co-founder and Veep star Matt Walsh has a new movie hitting theaters and VOD this fall that’s been in the works for over a year. Thanks to FilmBuff, A Better You – a fully improvised film Walsh directed and co-wrote with Brian Huskey – has an official premiere date of Friday, October 9th. Here’s the synopsis of the film:
A BETTER YOU, an improv comedy, follows Dr. Ron Knight (Brian Huskey, Neighbors, This Is The End, who also co-wrote the film), who in the unconventional healing community, stands out with his “Wake Up! Wake Up!” form of hypnotherapy. But with great ego and great success come great costs. As Dr. Ron becomes the prisoner to his own head, he loses touch with his gorgeous wife, Margo (Morgan Walsh), and their two children. Thrown into a midlife crisis, Dr. Ron looks for salvation on the most unlikely of shoulders: Hugo (Saturday Night Live’s Horatio Sanz), the day laborer who is not only tasked with fixing Dr. Ron’s rain gutters, but restoring his esteem as well.
Rob Huebel, Joe Lo Truglio, Erinn Hayes, Adam Pally, Morgan Walsh, Natasha Leggero, Reid Scott, Mo Gaffney, Andy Daly, and Riki Lindhome also appear in the film. For more on A Better You, check out our interview with Walsh here.
