Coffee & Kareem: Action Comedy Starring Taraji P. Henson and Ed Helms

Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson and Ed Helms star in the Netflix action-comedy Coffee & Kareem.

The story centers on a Detroit cop, who reluctantly teams up with his girlfriend’s 11-year-old son to clear his name and take down the city’s most ruthless criminal.

Michael Dowse, who helmed Fox’s upcoming action-comedy Stuber, will direct the picture from a 2014 Black List script by Shane McCarthy.

Helms will also produce the project with Mike Falbo via their Pacific Electric Pictures Co. banner (Corporate Animals, The Clapper). Sanford Nelson, Jordon Foss, Linden Nelson, and Don Foss will executive produce.
