Gravitas Ventures will release Will Dennis’ road trip dramedy Vanilla also starring Dennis alongside Kelsea Bauman-Murphy, on VOD / digital on April 28, 2020.
Vanilla is a fun, character-driven comedy about two strangers who end up on a three-day road trip from New York to New Orleans together, after working out a deal to sell a van cross country.
Dennis’ debut feature film also stars Aparna Nancherla (Netflix’s “Master of None”, HBO’s “Crashing”) and Johnny Sibilly (FX’s “Pose”).
A freewheeling comedian, determined to save her family business, invites an uptight entrepreneur on a road trip to sell a van with a complicated history. Calling it a first date, they establish road rules that include a dance collaboration, separate sleeping quarters, and French pastries. Romance ignites on their three-day trip. As they discover each other’s quirks and secrets, they must decide if their new connection is worth more than the van.
