Judd Apatow-produced comedy to film in Buffalo; local extras sought

A Universal Pictures romantic comedy is set to film during April in the Buffalo area.

The "Untitled Romantic Comedy" features the team of producer Judd Apatow, writer and star Billy Eichner and director Nicholas Stoller.

Deadline reports that the "comedy will center around two men who have commitment problems and are attempting a relationship."

Buffalo Niagara Film Commissioner Tim Clark said the production company team has been in town scouting locations.

Hollywood powerhouse Apatow is known for both television ("Freaks and Geeks") and film comedies including "Knocked Up," "Bridesmaids," "Anchorman" and "Superbad."

Eichner is the star and creator of the Emmy-nominated "Billy on the Street" and has also starred in "American Horror Story," "Parks and Recreation" and the 2019 version of "The Lion King" (voice of Timon).

Stoller is known for his popular comedies including "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Get Him to the Greek" (both produced by Apatow), along with "Neighbors" and "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising."
