Tessa Thompson and Whoopi Goldberg are teaming up for a new comedy titled Furlough. We reported about this project back in December and a trailer has finally arrived.

Furlough stars Thompson as a young woman who lives with and cares for her aging mother (Goldberg), while working part-time at a jail. At work, she is given a chance to show off her abilities when she is assigned to accompany an unruly prisoner (Melissa Leo) on an emergency furlough to visit her dying mother, but the duos trip goes haywire.

“Furlough” also stars Anna PaquinLa La Anthony and Drena De Niro. It is also written by Barry Strugatz and directed by Laurie Collyer.
