Spoiler Alert stars Jim Parsons, Ben Aldridge and Sally Field. Antoni Porowski, Nikki M. James, Jeffery Self, and Bill Irwin will also be featured in the film.

Producers on the project are Michael Showalter and Jordana Mollick via their SemiFormal Productions banner; Jim Parsons, and Todd Spiewak and Alison Mo Massey via the That’s Wonderful Production banner. Executive Producers are Michael Ausiello, Eric Norsoph, and Jason Sokoloff.

This is a tragicomic, heartwarming and life-affirming story of the eleven-month span between Ausiello’s partner, photographer Kit Cowan, receiving a diagnosis of terminal cancer, and his passing. It shows how Michael and Kit’s relationship is transformed and deepened during Kit’s illness, interwoven with the story of their meeting and falling in love and the ups and downs of the 14 year relationship.
