You Can Save Gillian Jacobs By Watching ‘The Big Ask’

An evil wizard has turned the beloved ‘Community’ star into a dog! Here’s how you can save her.

Making a dark comedy about love, self-discovery and sacrifice can be dangerous! Just ask Gillian Jacobs, who was transformed into a dog for her troubles. Luckily, her cast mates David Krumholtz, Melanie Lynskey and Jason Ritter filmed a public plea to retrieve her (no pun intended)…all her would-be rescuers have to do is watch The Big Ask.

Make sure that Gillian Jacobs turns back into a human! The Big Ask is now available to rent on VOD and digital platforms and opens in select theaters Friday, May 30th.

To celebrate the film’s release, directors Thomas Beatty and Rebecca Fishman will be doing a Q&A with David Krumholtz, Melanie Lynskey, Zachary Knighton, Ahna O’Reilly, and Jason Ritter this Friday night at the Laemmle Monica 4 in Los Angeles after the 7:50pm show!
