Maria Dizzia (In the Next Room) makes her directorial debut with Olli Haaskivi and Joseph Medeiros's new film Karens Unanimous. The movie, which features Broadway favorites Meghann Fahy (Next to Normal), Sarah Stiles (Hand to God), Arian Moayed (The Humans), Rebecca Naomi Jones (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), and Dizzia herself, is currently in development.

Karens Unanimous is about: "A girl. Her deceased father. Her deceased father's cult. Her deceased father's cult's mission to build a statue in New York City's Central Park." It is described as "a film about one young woman's search for meaning,​ ​one cult's search for two hundred thousand dollars,​ ​the families we​ ​find, and how we carry the important events that shape us for the rest of our lives."

The project is currently running a campaign on Indiegogo. Learn more by clicking here.
