‘The Late Bloomer: A Memoir of My Body’ was written by author and E! News personality, Ken Baker, who based the story on his own personal life story. The book chronicles how Baker unknowingly lived with a pituitary tumor that caused decades of sexual confusion and insecurities. But after diagnosis, a single surgery at age 28 would finally propel him through puberty and change his entire life.

The romantic comedy-drama film adaptation marks Pollak’s feature film directorial debut. ‘The Late Bloomer’ stars Johnny Simmons, Maria Bello, Brittany Snow, Jane Lynch, J.K. Simmons, Kumail Nanjiani, Beck Bennett and Paul Wesley. ‘The Late Bloomer’ is now playing in select theaters, and is also available On Demand and Digital HD from Momentum Pictures.

The following synopsis for ‘The Late Bloomer’ has been released by Momentum Pictures:

Dr. Pete Newmans (Johnny Simmons) is a successful sex therapist whose practice is almost completely devoted to helping people re-channel their sexual impulses. When Pete is hit in the nether regions during a friendly basketball game, his doctors discover a pituitary tumor that has delayed Pete’s onset of puberty for 15 years. Not only does Pete suddenly have an explanation for the various physical and mental issues that had been plaguing him, he undergoes what would normally be years of puberty in a matter of weeks. Mood swings, voice changes and acne greet Pete as he tries to navigate life as both a horny 15 year-old kid and a 30 year-old desperate to be a complete man and get the girl of his dreams.
