Jessica Williams stars in ‘The Incredible Jessica James.’

Netflix snagged The Incredible Jessica James prior to its debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival where it earned high praise from critics, and today they’ve unveiled a new teaser trailer in support of the film’s July 28, 2017 release. The Incredible Jessica James is currently sitting at 95% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with only a single critic giving it a negative review. TheWrap‘s Claudia Puig (not the negative critic) describes it as “a comedy centered around a multi-dimensional African-American woman who is smart, funny, vulnerable, sensual, charming, flawed, resilient, well-educated, an inspiring teacher and a loving friend feels almost like the cinematic equivalent of a unicorn.”

Jim Strouse wrote and directed the comedy and Jessica Williams stars in the title role. The cast also includes Chris O’Dowd, Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta), and Noël Wells (Master of None).

The Plot: Jessica Williams (The Daily Show) stars as a young, aspiring playwright in New York City who is struggling to get over a recent breakup. She is forced to go on a date with the recently divorced Boone, played by Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) and the unlikely duo discover how to make it through the tough times in a social media obsessed post-relationship universe.
