Adam Sandler's new Netflix comedy "Sandy Wexler" will send viewers back to the year 1994. And the streaming company has released a 30-second teaser, giving fans a quick glimpse of what that will look like.
Here, Sandler plays a kooky Los Angeles talent manager named Sandy Wexler. Though known for representing eccentric performers and lesser-known talents, Sandy strikes it big when he discovers a bonafide singing star (played by Oscar-and-Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson). However, things get complicated when he develops romantic feelings for her.
Directed by frequent Sandler director Steven Brill (The Do-Over, Mr. Deeds, Little Nicky), the Netflix film will also star Kevin James, Terry Crews, Lamorne Morris, Nick Swardson, Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers and Arsenio Hall.
"Sandy Wexler" will start streaming on Friday, April 14.
The film follows Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler), a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, who diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Academy Award and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.
