Teaming up with his work crush, they conspire to rob the financial institution. Together with their accomplices, the inexperienced criminals nab nearly $20 million - leaving a trail of evidence in their wake. Now the only thing tougher than pulling off the heist - will be getting away with it.

The project will be produced by Lorne Michaels & John Goldwyn. Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Michael Aguilar and Kevin Messick will executive produce alongside Relativity's CEO, Ryan Kavanaugh and President, Tucker Tooley.

Relativity's Brett Dahl will oversee the project for the studio.
