Hot off the heels of filming their new chat show Ronna & Beverly, for Sky Atlantic in the UK, comedy performers and writers Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo are thrilled to be re-uniting with Paul Feig as they get cast in his new movie starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.
Feig is a huge fan of Jessica and Jamie, having worked with them on their live chat Ronna & Beverly, which they perform monthly in LA at the UCB Theatre. He was also involved in showcasing the show at the Soho Theatre in London and is the Exec Producer on their brand new chat show Ronna & Beverly, which goes out in the UK on Sky Atlantic HD from early September.
Between them Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo's credits include Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Sex and the City. Following a series of critically acclaimed stage shows in the UK and across the States, Ronna & Beverly have become one of the most established and well-loved live acts, thanks to a combination of outrageously funny celebrity interviews and beautifully observed comic performances from Jessica and Jamie. Jamie Denbo is represented by Pakula King & Associates and Jessica Chaffin is represented by CAA.
