“Palm Springs is the perfect addition to Prime Video’s extensive collection of entertaining films, brought directly and exclusively to Prime members around the world”, said Brad Beale, Vice President, Worldwide Content Acquisition, Prime Video. “With captivating and hilarious performances, from Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, J.K.

Palm Springs follows carefree Nyles (Andy Samberg) and reluctant maid of honour Sarah (Cristin Milioti) who have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding.

Simmons (Roy), Meredith Hagner (Misty), Camila Mendes (Tala), Tyler Hoechlin (Abe), and Peter Gallagher (Howard). Palm Springs is directed by Max Barbakow and written by Andy Siara. The film was financed by Limelight and produced by Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, Becky Sloviter, Jorma Taccone and Limelight partners Dylan Sellers and Chris Parker. Gabby Revilla Lugo serves as executive producer.
Palm Springs will join thousands of movies and TV shows in the Prime Video catalogue, including Amazon Originals Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, The Big Sick, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Boys.
