I have a tendency to refer to Kat Foster as my, “Fellow May, Bay Area, Baby,” because we were both born in the Bay Area and I’m two weeks older than her. Putting that ever-so-slight bias aside, I spoke with Foster and writer/director Gina O’Brien about their new tennis comedy coming to VOD on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 entitled, First One In.
Foster plays Madi, a former high school tennis star that gets canceled by society after a tragic incident on a reality show. In order to start over in her real estate career, Madi gets hired at the most prestigious and competitive firm run by the Johnny Lawrence of tennis, Bobbi (Georgia King). Through her friend with a band of misfits and an old teammate, Madi reconnects with her love of tennis and who she truly is as a person.
Quite frankly, this is far more of a conversation than an interview as O’Brien steals all my best questions before I could ask them, but seriously, this was a lot of fun, like old friends getting together and chatting over brunch.
First One In is set to release on major VOD/Digital platforms including Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2020.
