The Elliott family—that’s Chris Elliott, Paula Niedert, and their two daughters, Abby and Bridey Elliott—is collaborating on a film for the first time.

At the Sundance premiere of the film, we spoke with the Chris and Paula about having their kids follow in their father’s footsteps and go into show business.
