The Wrong Missy

David Spade (Joe Dirt) leads this Netflix comedy as a meek fellow who meets the girl of his dreams. But when he texts her to join him on a luxury company retreat, he accidentally sends the invite to a crazy blind date (Lauren Lapkus, The Big Bang Theory) who graciously - and loudly - accepts.
