"Cook Off!" is a Christopher Guest–like mockumentary that's set in the wacky world of competitive baking.

Filmed and completed a decade ago, the movie -- which features an impressive lineup of improv comedians that include Melissa McCarthy, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Ben Falcone, Niecy Nash, Jennifer Cox, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Louie Anderson, Gary Anthony Williams, Jennifer Elise Cox, Cathryn Michon, Markie Post, and Sam Pancake -- has been sitting on a shelf somewhere, collecting dust since premiering back in 2007 at the U.S. Comedy and Arts Festival.

And apparently, Lionsgate has recently acquired the film's rights and will now release the reality baking show spoof on November 17th. Watch the newly released trailer, above.

synopsis:
Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot. Costarring a cast of improv geniuses, the zesty COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.
