Netflix has just acquired the rights to Jessica Williams’ Sundance film, ‘The Incredible Jessica James’. Chosen as the festival’s closer, ‘Jessica James’, is a modern comedy that centers around Williams, a New York playwright struggling to get over a failed relationship and recently divorced Chris O’Dowd as “they discover how to make it through the tough times in a social media obsessed post-relationship universe.“ ‘Jessica James’ co-stars Lakeith Stanfield and Noël Wells and was written and directed by Jim Strouse.
