Felicity Huffman’s upcoming Netflix comedy about mom life will no longer be released this month, with the streaming service pulling the film following the actress’ guilty plea in the college admissions bribery scam.
Netflix confirmed to the Associated Press, Huffman’s film ‘Otherhood” starring Angela Bassett and Patricia Arquette will no longer be released on April 26.
They did not give a future release date.
Huffman had been seen on set in New York filming with Bassett and Arquette. The comedy follows three overbearing moms who show up to their son’s homes on unannounced visits.
Even though they yanked one project, Netflix did release a teaser for another project featuring Huffman, “When They See Us” directed by Ava DuVernary. Huffman will play former prosecutor, Linda Fairstein, who had a role in the prosecution of five young men for an alleged Central Park rape that ocurred in 1989. The convictions would all be vacated years later after another man confessed to the crimes.
Huffman has not commented on the move by Netflix.
