In this real-life story set in 2008, J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm) is a sports agent who desperately needs a star to keep his agency going. When things don’t work out with a current star who ends up signing with someone else, JB and his buddy decide to create a star or two. J.B. goes to India with the intent to produce a reality show where Cricket players compete for a chance to be a Major League Baseball pitcher.

This is definitely an underdog story, a fish-out-of-water story, and a story of personal transformation for more than one character. I loved it!

Also stars Alan Arkin, Lake Bell, and Suraj Sharma.
