"As Sick As They Made Us" is the name of the film, written and directed by "Blossom" and "Big Bang Theory" star Mayim Bialik. Fresh off her new sitcom, "Call Me Kat" on Fox, Mayim told Forbes about her new project, which will film throughout north New Jersey this June and throughout the summer. She shares that she penned a heartfelt and emotional story "about growing up in a home with mental illness and how that impacts siblings differently and how it impacts the entire family." The Hollywood Reporter adds, "The movie follows a divorced mother of two who rekindles love in her life amid the crazy antics of her dysfunctional family. Now she must attempt to convince her stubborn and comically unfortunate family members to hold it together while they embrace one final farewell."
The cast is pretty incredible.
Probably best known for works like "Murphy Brown", "Miss Congeniality", and "Sweet Home Alabama", Candice Bergen will play Barbara.
"Rain Man" and "Meet the Fockers" star Dustin Hoffman will play Eugene.
"Glee" star Dianna Agron will play Abigail.
...and "Howard" from "Big Bang Theory" (Simon Helberg) will play Nathan.
