The dramedy Death of a Telemarketer will get a digital-only release Jan. 25 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
In the film, ace telemarketer Kasey (Lamorne Morris) is in a close sales contest with newbie employee Barry (Woody McClain), and must score a big sale by midnight or he’ll lose the largest commission. Out of desperation, Kasey waits until everyone leaves the office and finds the Do Not Call list. He thinks he’s found the perfect mark, but instead finds himself held hostage and at the mercy of Asa (Jackie Earle Haley), the man he tried to swindle. Now Kasey must pass Asa’s twisted test of ethics if he wants to live to sell another day.
Death of a Telemarketer was written and directed by Khaled Ridgeway and produced by Datari Turner, Meagan Good and James Yi.
The cast also includes Alisha Wainwright, Gwen Gottlieb, Matt McGorry and Haley Joel Osment.
