The screenplay “Jen Again” Written By Jennifer Hurvitz Weintraub is an official selection of the Atlanta Comedy Film Festival: Fall 2017.


"Loosely based on the popular divorce blog, 'The TRUTH Hurvitz', JEN AGAIN is a half-hour, mid-life 'coming of age' dramedy that follows the funny, sexy, honest, unapologetic and controversial travails of Jen. A Jewish uber mom/wife from Detroit who suddenly finds herself living on the middle notch of the Bible belt in Charlotte, North Carolina when her husband gets a new job assignment. This begins a new chapter in Jen's life...seeing how she survives living as a Jewish American Princess in the Queen City. With resentment building from the move...no family or friends to 'kvetch' to, and a distant husband is there a divorce on the horizon? We learn to fall in love with Jen during her struggle, It's your perfect fish out of water story, Crocodile Dundee meets Carrie Bradshaw. Relatable and heartfelt...this is Jen Again."
