Program Description


Veteran comedy writer Charlie Burnz (Billy Crystal) forms an unlikely yet hilarious and touching friendship with New York lounge singer Emma Payge (Tiffany Haddish). Emma unexpectedly wins a lunch with the comedy legend, but their relationship gets off to an extremely rocky start. Before long, each finds in the other a sort of soulmate, forging a deep bond in a story of friendship across generations. The film is based on Alan Zweibel's short story, "The Prize." Critics noted "the easy chemistry between the characters reflects the real-life friendship of the two stars."
