A POWERHOUSE CAST MAKES HILARIOUS MAYHEM IN A STORY OF LOVE AND HATE AND HOW NOTHING BREEDS CONTEMPT LIKE SOMEONE ELSE'S SUCCESS
A young novelist hits it big with his new red-hot hit, but when his siblings see their horrible selves reflected in his characters, they threaten to throw the book at him, and worse. The story of what happens when awful people get together for a nice family celebration, the black comedy Peep World provides an outrageous look at a modern American family.
At a dinner celebrating their father Henry's 70th birthday, tensions among four siblings explode thanks to the success of youngest son Nathan's new novel, a thinly veiled portrait of the family. The best-selling expose reveals the oldest, "responsible" son, Jack, as a porn addict, daughter Cheri as a catty drama queen and washed-up actress, and black sheep son Joel as a slow-motion disaster with a loony plan to change his life around (at his family's expense). And things aren't exactly going so great for the hot new writer due to a bad and lasting reaction to a certain men's medication.
The highly anticipated comedy, which has been compared to the landmark Danish film The Celebration, features an all-star cast, including Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under) as Jack, comedian Sarah Silverman (School of Rock) as Cheri, Rainn Wilson (The Office) as Joel and Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, The Other Guys) as Nathan, plus Judy Greer (Archer, 27 Dresses, CBS' new Mad Love), Kate Mara (127 Hours, Brokeback Mountain), Taraji P. Henson (The Karate Kid, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Ron Rifkin (Brothers & Sisters, Sex and the City) and Lesley Ann Warren (Cinderella, Victor/Victoria). Together, this brilliant ensemble makes the riotous Peep World the ultimate case of a family in arrested development.
