Hickey: Alex Grossman’s Teen Workplace Comedy

Maxine Street LLC will release Alex Grossman’s teen workplace comedy HICKEY for an LA theatrical run on January 6, followed by a North American DVD/TVOD release from Gravitas Ventures on January 10.

HICKEY is Grossman’s first feature film and stars Troy Doherty, Flavia Watson, Raychel Diane Weiner (TV’s FLESH AND BONE, BOSCH), Zedrick Restauro, and Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister Jr. (THE FIFTH ELEMENT). Grossman wrote and directed and Lije Sarki produced.

“Making this film and premiering it at SXSW made 2016 a great year for us.” said Grossman, “I’m excited to bring my first feature film to audiences across North America.”

HICKEY is a day in the life of math whiz and recent high school graduate Ryan Chess (Doherty) who has spent the entire summer dithering over his choice of colleges. On the one hand, he has a full ride to his dream school, MIT but he’s also hopelessly in love with co-worker Carly (Watson), whom he has never asked out. Staying home and attending UCLA would mean he gets to stay close to Carly, but if they’re not even a couple, is it worth it?

To add insult to injury, Cy’s regional manager (and all-around jerk) Brady Krane (Alex Ashbaugh) has ordered the branch to be closed immediately, giving the staff just one day to try and meet their monthly sales quota, setting off a barrage of last-ditch efforts by the colorful crew of Cy’s to save their jobs.

Will they make it? Will Ryan get the girl? “To get the girl he loves, he must save the store he hates.”
