By LYNN GORMAN ByLIN HENDRICKS/THE WASHINGTON POSTHollywood is grappling with the drug overdose crisis, but a few familiar faces are helping the fight.
One of them is actress Jenna Fischer, best known for her role as a drug addict in the film “The Mindy Project.”
She spoke to reporters Tuesday about her involvement with the movie, her work on the hit TV show “The Mentalist” and her new book, “Mental Rehab.”
She also addressed a topic she’s frequently asked about: drugs.
The issue of drugs in the entertainment industry is still a sensitive one, she said.
“I think a lot of people don’t realize that there are some drugs that are legal, and some drugs, they’re legal for medical use.
It’s really sad. “
And it’s very sad.
It’s really sad.
I’m a realist, and I’m really trying to get my mind around this, but we have to have a conversation, and this is a big, big, tough conversation.”
The Mental Health Rehab movie is being produced by the same company that made “The Secret Life of Pets” and “The Walking Dead,” Fischer said.
The movie is set in the fictional city of Los Angeles, which has been struggling with drug use.
Fischer has been a member of the “Mindy Project” cast for more than a decade.
“The Mental Project” follows a group of drug addicts who are on the run from police.
Some are battling the effects of prescription drugs, while others are struggling with addiction to alcohol.
“They are all suffering and they all have their own stories,” Fischer told reporters.
“Mental rehab, in my opinion, is the only way that we can make this film,” she added.
Fischer said she believes the film will help those who struggle with addiction.
“I think that it’s going to make a difference,” she said of the movie.
“You’re not going to see any of the drug users in the movie that I’ve seen in the past,” she continued.
“They’re not in a drug rehab center, and they’re very private.
I mean, I think that’s going for them, because that’s what they need.”
The mental health rehab movie has been in development for some time.
It is being written by James Dickey, who is a former New York City prosecutor and a former prosecutor in Los Angeles.
In recent years, Dickey has been working on projects for HBO and other television networks.
He is a member and producer of the TV series “The Killing,” which focuses on the killing of two NYPD officers in a Brooklyn park in 2015.
“Mindy’s” producers have been in touch with other shows about addiction, and she has been told to come up with a new movie.
One possible film in the works, she told reporters, is about drug addiction in the family, with the characters’ families coping with their loved ones.
“So, we’re going to start with family, we’ll try to explore the complexities of addiction and how we’re all affected,” she told the media.
The Mental Rehab movie also has been under development for several years.
Fischer is involved in the writing of the screenplay.
Dickey told The Post that his script is about a family of people who use drugs, and not the characters in the films.
The project, he said, is not about drugs as a whole.
“It’s not about the drug, it’s not drug rehab,” he said.
The movie, which he called “mixed” and said would have some drug references, was originally set up as a series of four episodes, but Dickey and producer Michael Green have decided to have more.
“My intention is to do more of a family film,” Dickey said.
In the book, Fischer described her role in the “Manchurian Candidate” and other TV shows as “the biggest drug test ever.”
“I was in a mental institution, and it’s one of the most humiliating experiences of my life,” she wrote.
“But at the same time, it was the most rewarding.
It was a life-changing experience for me.”
The “Mentally Rehab” movie is also expected to be directed by John Ridley, a former director of the National Institute of Mental Health.
Ridley was on the set of the documentary “The Last Kiss,” which chronicled the suicide of a former nurse in Kentucky who committed suicide after a battle with mental illness.
The documentary was filmed in a nursing home, where patients were given mental health services.
“Moral Rehab” will explore the treatment of the mentally ill, according to a press release.
The book is set to be released in 2019.
