As one of the four founding members of seminal New York improv group The Upright Citizens Brigade, Matt Walsh has been thinking on his feet for years. And with The High Road, his directorial debut, he’s taking that skill to a new playing field, crafting a feature-length “improv movie.” Throughout the shoot, Walsh presented his actors with scene outlines and plot points, but left it to them to fill in the details and the dialogue. In lesser hands this might prove a recipe for listlessness, but with a cast that included improv stalwarts such as Ed Helms, Lizzy Caplan, Zach Woods, Rob Riggle, and Horatio Sanz, Walsh was in good company.

The High Road premieres on DVD and VOD March 6th. Watch the trailer below:
