Primetime Emmy winner Lucy Barzun Donnelly is currently executive producing the indie film "Friends with Kids" in New York. Donnelly owns Locomotive, the company behind the HBO film "Grey Gardens". "Gardens" was nominated for 17 Primetime Emmy Awards and won multiple categories, in addition to winning several Golden Globe awards. Next up for Locomotive is the feature film "Mommy & Me" which will star Meryl Streep and Tina Fey.

The multi-talented Jennifer Westfeldt, who played the role of "Lauren Stone" as a series regular on ABC's "Notes from the Underbelly," is directing from a script that she wrote herself. Westfeldt also co-stars along with her long-time boyfriend Jon Hamm of "Mad Men" fame.

Rounding out the cast is Saturday Night Live cast member Kristen Wiig and Adam Scott, who played the role of Henry Pollard in the Starz comedy series "Party Down" for which he received a Primetime Emmy nod, and the 24 year old two time Teen Choice Award winner Megan Fox. Sources working on the set of "Friends with Kids" have said that Megan Fox has been showing some serious acting skills while filming scenes with Jon Hamm. "Megan has obviously taken a huge step forward talent wise with this role, no surprise since she has been training in drama and dance since age five".

A couple of thirty-something best friends observe the toll that having kids has taken on the couples they know, so they resolve to bypass the stress by having a child and then dating other people. Scott and Westfeldt are playing the lead couple Jason Fryman and Jen Keller. Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm play Missy and Ben, another couple. Megan Fox plays a love interest of Adam Scott after she begins to date him.
