"The Incredible Jessica James" debuts on Netflix this month and stars Jessica Williams as a young playwright in New York city who, recovering from a breakup, begins a friendship with a divorcée played by Chris O'Dowd.

Reluctantly forced to date by a well-meaning friend, she meets  the recently divorced Boone (O'Dowd). An unlikely duo at first, together, they discover how to make it through the tough times, in a social media obsessed post-relationship universe, while realizing they like each other - a lot.

Featuring a breakout performance from Jessica Williams, it's  a refreshing and heartfelt modern comedy with an honest, hilarious and shockingly relatable look at what it means to be a twenty-something today.

Netflix will launch the film which  is directed and written by Jim Strouse ("People  Places Things") on July 28.

Check out the trailer below and images from the
Essence Festival premiere held at the Civic Theater in New Orleans this weekend.
