In the new trailer for Netflix’s forthcoming comedy feature, THE INCREDIBLE JESSICA JAMES, the titular character (played by the equally incredible Jessica Williams) is set to rule her Coco Queendom whilst keeping it real on Tinder dates, dancing on rooftops, and most of all, preventing manspreading epidemics on the New York subway system.
The story has Williams as a playwright in New York City. Still obsessing over her ex-boyfriend (Lakeith Stanfield), she tries her hardest to dive into the dating pool but finds no satisfaction in swiping left and right on Tinder. Her BFF (Noel Wells) sets her up on a date with recent divorcee Boone (Chris O’Dowd) and at first, they clash, but as they begin to form a bond over their broken hearts, they become booty call buddies with the potential for more.
Directed by Jim Strouse, the film made its world premiere at Sundance (read our review here) to critical praise and immediately was picked up by the streaming giant. The 57-second trailer doesn’t exactly give us anything substantial when it comes to narrative, but it’s delightful, funny, and gives a glimpse into how dope Jessica James is — as if you need to know more.
