Oscar-winning actress Melissa McCarthy joins hands with Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss as the trio stars together in the crime drama film, The Kitchen. Directed by Andrea Berloff, The Kitchen is based on the Vertigo comic book miniseries and will see Melissa, Tiffany and Elisabeth's characters taking over organised crime operations in 1970s New York when their husbands get arrested by the FBI. The Kitchen also stars Brian d'Arcy James, James Badge Dale and Jeremy Bobb in pivotal roles.

When Melissa was asked what intrigued her about playing Kathy in The Kitchen, Melissa shared, "As a result of Andrea’s good writing that stays focused on character, I always looked at what I thought was her backstory. Again, with the writing, you can imagine all these scenarios, like how she was in high school.  You understand there was a role she was supposed to play and the fact that she was smart enough to do more things didn’t matter.  She was supposed to marry and have babies and that was her role. Then, when she had the opportunity to do more, she took it."

"I like that she first and foremost protected her family and was there for her children.  I think watching any parent do what it takes to protect their kids is very relatable.  I have two kids, too, and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them.  I really hope I don’t start running the mob," McCarthy added on why she finds Kathy relatable as a mother of two kids.
