HBO Max has released the trailer for UNpregnant, starring Haley Lu Richardson (Columbus) as a high school girl who finds out she’s pregnant and her ex-best friend (Barbie Ferreira of HBO’s Euphoria) to help her out, playing out like the comedy version of Never Rarely Sometimes Always meets Booksmart.
UNpregnant tells the story of seventeen-year-old Veronica (Haley Lu Richardson), who never thought she’d want to fail a test—that is, until she finds herself staring at a piece of plastic with two solid pink lines. With a promising college-bound future now disappearing before her eyes, Veronica considers a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. This tough and never-taken-lightly decision leads her on a 900+ mile road trip to New Mexico over three days with her ex-best friend Bailey (Barbie Ferreira), where they discover that one of the most important factors in your life is who your friends are.
UNpregnant is directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg from a screenplay by Ted Caplan & Jenni Hendricks, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, Goldenberg & William Parker. It co-stars Ramona Young, Sugar Lyn Beard, Breckin Meyer, Betty Who, Mary McCormack and Giancarlo Esposito.
It will be available to stream exclusively on HBO Max September 10. Here is the trailer.
