Lez Bomb is a multigenerational comedy of errors featuring a young woman (Lauren) who comes home for Thanksgiving with some life changing news. Little does Lauren know, the eccentric cast of characters that make up her extended family have their own stirring surprises as well. The result is a hilarious series of events forcing the family to come together in what amounts to the most unceremonious of holidays. As it turns out, there is no good time to drop the Lez Bomb.

Jenna Laurenzo, a Jersey girl born and raised, is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, where she received her BHA in Drama & English, with a focus in directing and writing. After four years in Pittsburgh, Jenna trained at Michael Howard’s acting conservatory in NYC. She started creating content for the web; a handful of digital shorts and web series. Her short film Girl Night Stand went viral online, garnering well over 2 million views on Youtube, and was unexpectedly translated and subtitled in many other languages by lesbian fans from around the world (she’s big in China). While touring the festival circuit with Girl Night Stand, Jenna met comedy-legend Bobby Farrelly, who saw her short, read Lez Bomb, and came on board as executive producer. Lez Bomb is Jenna’s feature length directorial debut. It was shot in and around her hometown of Ramsey, New Jersey. Lez Bomb made its world premiere at Geena Davis’ Bentonville Film Festival in May, where it won the best narrative film jury award. Jenna’s currently working on her next feature, and developing a number of projects for television.
