"This experience has been thus far the dreamiest trippiest thing I have experienced in my career. Seeing these actors bringing my words to life and seeing their creativity soar is an experience I never imagined could bring so much satisfaction. Being a director means also seeing images which evoke meaning; these actors are elevating every image I imagined exponentially. I come home every night exhausted and spent and simultaneously energized and starving for more,” said writer/director Mayim Bialik. 


Screen Media Ventures President David Fannon stated, “We are excited for Film Mode Entertainment to launch sales on Mayim Bialik’s all-star, multigenerational dramatic comedy. We have no doubt this film will be highly sought after by our partners.” 


A new romance with Jay (Justin Chu Cary) for recently divorced Abigail (Dianna Agron), who has just split from her husband (Charlie Webb), arrives right in the midst of her parents’ (Dustin Hoffman and Candice Bergen) chaotic antics. After a lifetime of dysfunctional hilarity, the family, accompanied by an estranged brother (Simon Helberg) find it within themselves to embrace for one final goodbye. As Sick As They Made Us is written and directed by multiple award-winner and nominee Mayim Bialik a two-time winner of the Critic’s Choice Television Award for best supporting actress for The Big Bang Theory, a 5-time Emmy-nominee and a 3-time SAG award-nominee. 


“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Screen Media on this amazing film, and equally excited with the addition of Charlie and Justin to our outstanding cast. We’ve been such fans of this project and Mayim for a long time, and we’re thrilled with how the production is going. This will also be our second time working with Charlie, who we previously collaborated with on our film, PANAMA, starring Cole Hauser and Mel Gibson, and we know he’ll be a great addition to the team,” said Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman of Yale Productions.
