The Perfect Find, the upcoming Netflix rom-com starring Gabrielle Union and Keith Powers, has received its first official trailer.
Directed by Numa Perrier and written by Leigh Davenport, the film is based on the novel by Tia Williams. The film also stars Aisha Hinds, DB Woodside, Janet Hubert, Alani “La La” Anthony and Gina Torres.
Here’s the logline: After a high-profile firing, Jenna’s (Gabrielle Union) fashion career comeback hits a snag when she falls for a charming, much younger coworker (Keith Powers) — who happens to be her boss’s son. As sparks fly, Jenna must decide if she’ll risk it all on a secret romance.
The Perfect Find is produced by Glendon Palmer, Gabrielle Union, Jeff Morrone, Codie Elaine Oliver, and Tommy Oliver, with Stuart Ford, Miguel A. Palos, Linda McDonough, Holly Shakoor Fleischer, Melissa Jones, Leigh Davenport and Matthew Myers serving as executive producers.
“Jenna is going through a work and love upheaval and trying to figure out her next chapter, and I was literally going through the exact same thing,” Perrier told Netflix’s TUDUM. “I felt like I was her in a way. I really related to the idea of trying to figure out what your next step is when you feel broken, you’re trying to put yourself back together. And then I really wanted to make a great classic, amazing rom-com.”
She added, “Rom-coms are back! This is the movie. You’re going to laugh, you’re going to cry and… it is very sexy. We will have our chemistry, we will have our sensuality, we will have all the things.”
Powers said of his experience working with Union, “[Her] advice was to trust myself and know that I belong here. She would just be like, go out there and do what we believe that you can do. That really helped because confidence is everything, especially on screen… And in a rom-com, when you’re a lead in it opposite someone, you two are literally what drives the movie. You have to have that confidence.”
The Perfect Find premieres exclusively on Netflix on June 22.
