Magnolia Pictures has revealed the trailer and poster for Buffaloed, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Tanya Wexler (Hysteria). The film, starring and produced by Zoey Deutch (Zombieland: Double Tap, Set It Up, The Politician), is an engrossing comedy about a natural-born hustler and her descent into the unorthodox world of debt collection as a way out of her seemingly dead-end life in Buffalo, New York.
Magnolia will release Buffaloed, which had its world premier in the Spotlight Narrative section of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, on February 14 in theaters and On Demand. You can view the trailer above and you’ll also find the teaser trailer and poster below.
Buffalo is the debt collection capital of America, though Peg Dahl (Zoey Deutch) never saw herself in that world. She’s bet on her sharp mind—and even sharper mouth—to get her out of town and into an Ivy League university. But when an acceptance letter to the school of her dreams arrives, she quickly realizes the cruel impossibility of paying tuition. A chance phone call changes everything and leads her into the lucrative yet complex and shady business of delinquent debt collection. She’s a natural and soon running her own shop, but at what cost?
Also starring Judy Greer, Jai Courtney and Jermaine Fowler, Buffaloed is a hilarious and timely comedy about one woman rewriting the rules of The Man’s game.
“Buffaloed is a hoot from start to finish,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “Tanya Wexler’s direction is perfectly on point and Zoey Deutch kicks major ass.”
“I loved working with Zoey Deutch,” said Tanya Wexler. “It was so much fun to create Buffaloed, a story of a badass woman who embodies the fantasy of punching every a-hole you’ve ever met in the face.”
“I’m thrilled that Buffaloed has found a home with Magnolia Pictures,” said Zoey Deutch. “This project has been a labor of love for all those involved and we can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

The producers are Mason Novick, John Finemore, Bannor Michael MacGregor, Jeffrey Katz, Zoey Deutch and Brian Sacca.
