The movie is about a lonely lesbian called Martha (Lyonne), whose sister Shannon (Greer), is a sex addict with no impulse control and a long history of poor decisions. They both end up in Fresno cleaning hotel rooms, when they accidentally kill a guest, and are forced to confront their unpleasant co-dependent relationship.

Babbit has garnered SXSW and Sundance awards for her film work. She recently directed two episodes of FX’s new comedy series Married, which Greer stars on opposite Nat Faxon, Jenny Slate, and Brett Gelman.

‘Fresno’ was scripted by Community and Portlandia writer Karey Dornetto and is produced by Babbit’s longtime producer Andrea Sperling. Filming is set to begin next month.
