Paramount has released a new trailer for its upcoming comedy, “Like A Boss,” starring Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne, and even though he’s only seen for a few brief moments, it’s all about Billy Porter.

The movie, which was directed by Miguel Arteta from a screenplay by Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly, is set to open early next year, and the new Red Band trailer dropped on Monday is the most extensive look at it we’ve gotten so far.

Judging from what it shows us, “Like A Boss” looks to be a raunchy, foul-mouthed, no-holds-barred female buddy comedy, full of big laughs and bad behavior. It also looks like Porter, the Tony and Emmy-winning out star of “Pose,” gives a scene-stealing performance as the two ladies’ co-worker.

According to the official synopsis:

“Best friends Mia and Mel (Haddish and Byrne) are living their best lives running their own cosmetics company they’ve built from the ground up. Unfortunately, they’re in over their heads financially, and the prospect of a big buyout offer from a notorious titan of the cosmetics industry, Claire Luna (Salma Hayek), proves too tempting to pass up, putting Mel and Mia’s lifelong friendship in jeopardy. The beauty business is about to get ugly.”

Besides Haddish, Byrne, Hayek and Porter, “Like A Boss” also stars Jennifer Coolidge, Ari Graynor, Natasha Rothwell, Jessica St. Clair and Karan Soni. It opens January 10, 2020.
