Kumail Nanjiani will star in an episode of the new Twilight Zone original series. The episode is written by Alex Rubens (“The Last OG,” “Key and Peele”). Nanjiani joins previously announced host and narrator Jordan Peele and other cast members Sanaa Lathan and Adam Scott.
The Twilight Zone will premiere exclusively on CBS All Access in 2019.
The story of a real life romance and near tragedy, The Big Sick (we gave it an A+) is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on September 19th with a goodly supply of extras, including an Audio Commentary by Actor-Writer Kumail Nanjiani, Writer Emily V. Gordon, Producer Barry Mendel and Director Michael Showalter; featurettes, deleted scenes and more.
The Big Sick may be the latest entry in the Judd Apatow lifts gifted comics to the next level sweepstakes, but it is very much not a Judd Apatow film.
Written by Kumail Nanjiani and his wife, Emily Gordon, The Big Sick is the mostly true story of how the couple met, fell in love, broke up and would probably never have seen each other again if she hadn’t gotten so sick she needed to be placed in a medical coma.
