After some time in development and two strikes, Netflix is moving forward with Kinda Pregnant, a new comedy movie starring Amy Schumer. Kinda Pregnant will follow a woman wearing a fake baby bump because she is jealous of her best friend’s pregnancy, leading her into awkward comedic situations.

The project has been in development at Netflix for quite some time, with us first getting wind of the project back in early 2023. Netflix declined to comment at the time with Deadline “exclusively” reporting the title in November.

Netflix’s Kinda Pregnant will be directed by Tyler Spindel, whose credits include Netflix’s The Out-Laws, The Wrong Missy, Father of the Year, and others. The script for the movie was written by Julie Paiva, who previously wrote a short film called The Secret.

Amy Schumer will produce with Adam Sandler, Tim Herlihy, Judit Maull, Kevin Grady, and Eli Thomas for Sandler’s Happy Madison production company. Alex Saks is also listed as a producer on the project.

Plot details for Netflix’s Kinda Pregnant are rather scarce but we do have a brief description of the premise. Kinda Pregnant follows Lainy, a woman who is jealous of her best friend’s pregnancy and begins wearing a fake baby bump. She then accidentally meets the man of her dreams.

It has been announced that Amy Schumer will star as the lead in Netflix’s Kinda Pregnant. She will play the aforementioned Lainy. According to our own sources, Schumer has been attached to star in Kinda Pregnant since before the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Her recent roles include Life & Beth, Bros, Trolls Band Together, and she’s set to appear in Jerry Seinfeld’s upcoming Netflix movie Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story.

Shortly before filming began, Schumer revealed that she’s got a condition called Crushing syndrome that causes an over-production of the stress hormone cortisol.

Netflix expanded the cast announcements on February 21st, 2024. Joining Schumer are Jillian Bell (Brittany Runs a Marathon, Murder Mystery 2), Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth, MacGruber), Damon Wayans Jr. (Players, Happy Endings), and Brianne Howey (Ginny and Georgia).

Chris Geere will also appear in the movie.

In January 2024, a casting call was issued for child actors to feature in the movie specifically for caucasian twins or triplet boys aged between 3 to 5 years old.

What’s the production status of Kinda Pregnant?

Netflix’s Kinda Pregnant began filming on February 26, 2024, in New York. Production is set to wrap on May 4, 2024.
