Meeting Spencer

Meeting Spencer Release Date: April 22, 2011

After a series of Hollywood flops, famed director Harris Chappell (Jeffrey Tambor) returns to New York to relaunch his Broadway career.

Directed by Mowbray, whose “A Private Function,” starring Michael Palin and Maggie Smith, is widely considered one of the classic British comedies of the 1980s, Meeting Spencer takes place in one night, in the fabled Theater Row hangout Frankie & Johnnie’s (recreated on a Hollywood sound stage), and concerns the increasingly frantic efforts of a once-famous stage director to raise financing for a production he hopes will be his Broadway comeback. Based on an original screenplay by Andrew Kole, Andrew Delaplane, and Scott Kasdin, the film is an affectionate homage to such classic screwball comedies as “Room Service” and “Twentieth Century.” Melinda McGraw (“Mad Men”) and Jesse Plemons (“Friday Night Lights”, and Peter Berg’s 2012 film “Battleship”) head the large supporting cast.
