About the Production of Tammy (2014)
In November 2011, New Line Cinema reportedly acquired Melissa McCarthy’s script, Tammy. The film’s story revolves around an obese woman who gets laid off from her job. She then finds out about her husband cheating on her and decides to take a road trip with her alcoholic grandmother, high on profanity.
Tate Taylor and Beth McCarthy-Miller had a direct hand on this Cinematic project. However, those deals weren’t closed, and McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone, ended up getting in the director’s chair.
