Ripley, who stars as Chalfant's daughter, began production on the film two days after concluding the national tour of Next to Normal, where she repeated her Tony-winning performance as Diana Goodman across the country.

Chalfant (Wit, Angels in America) stars as a woman dying of cancer, who attempts to reconcile with her husband and adult children. The cast also features Keir Dullea (as Chalfant's husband), Mia Dillon, Malachy McCourt, Nick Stevenson, Ger Duany, Vanessa Morosco and Suzanne Hayes.

Michael Patrick Kelly is directing the film, which has a screenplay by Kathleen Kiley. "Isn't It Delicious?" is produced by Aquapio Films.

According to the creators, "When Joan Daly [Chalfant], the controlling matriarch of an upper-middle class New England family, discovers she is dying of lung cancer, she sets out to reconcile her dysfunctional relationships with her three children, her husband [Dullea], and along the way, her former best friend [Dillon]. After learning of her diagnosis, Joan decides not to pursue chemotherapy, or any alternative treatment. The family’s destructive ways are offset by messy and somewhat humorous attempts by Joan to set her children on the right course before she dies. She will also have to truly see her husband for the first time. In this big dysfunctional mix, they will all learn to connect in their own ways, and realize on their own terms what life is about."
