Rivera, who has more than 25 million social media followers, makes his feature film debut in a movie about two brothers who have nothing in common, but need to work together when their parents leave them home alone for a week. The ensemble cast features Kress (“iCarly”), Marcus Scribner (“Black-ish”), and Ryan Newman (“Zeke and Luther”).
Kress’ character is the older brother who overhears his boss speaking with General Electric about an innovation competition. He dreams of becoming the next Mark Zuckerberg so he agrees to help throw a party in exchange for help with an app.
The film is directed by K. Asher Levin (“Cougars Inc.”), and is produced by Rivera, Levin, and Rob Fishman, who co-founded Niche, the marketing company acquired last year by Twitter.
