Lake Bell (No Strings Attached, "Children's Hospital") stars in In a World..., a hilarious and heart-felt comedy about a struggling vocal coach who strikes it big in the cutthroat world of movie-trailer voiceovers, only to find herself in direct competition with the industry's reigning king--her father. Written and directed by Bell, who won the Sundance 2013 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for the script, In a World... also stars Fred Melamed (A Serious Man), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Demetri Martin ("Important Things with Demetri Martin"), Michaela Watkins ("Enlightened"), Ken Marino ("Burning Love"), Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation"), Alexandra Holden (The Hot Chick) and Tig Notaro ("The Sarah Silverman Program").

Underachieving voice coach Carol Solomon (Bell) not only lives in the house of her egotistical father, Sam Sotto (Melamed), but also in the massive shadow he casts as the undisputed king of the vicious, male-dominated world of movie-trailer voice-overs. When Sam kicks her out to make room for his girlfriend Jamie (Holden), Carol lands her first voice-over gig with the help of charming sound engineer Louis (Martin), beating out industry bad boy Gustav Warner (Marino) for the job. Proving it's no fluke, she soon lines up two more projects in quick succession.

At an industry party, Carol has a one-night stand with the seductive Gustav, neither realizing who the other is. It's only later that Gustav learns Carol is the "thief" who "stole" the V.O. job from him and vows to make her pay. Soon afterwards, Sam discovers Carol is in the running to become the official voice of a blockbuster, female-centered movie "quadrilogy." Threatened by his own daughter's rising star, Sam tries to discourage her while secretly pushing his reps to land him the gig instead.

As romantic sparks begin to fly between her and Louis, and with her budding career and sense of self on the line, Carol finds herself facing a momentous decision: Whether to give in to her father's bullying or go all out for the job and finally begin living life on her own terms.
