Netflix has announced Friends from College, a new eight-part comedy series starring Keegan-Michael Key and The Avengers’ Cobie Smulders.
Written and produced by husband and wife team Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco, the show will also feature Annie Parisse (Vinyl, The Following), Nat Faxon (Married, American Dad, Ben & Kate), Fred Savage (The Grinder, The Wonder Years) and Jae Suh Park (The Mindy Project, The Big Short).
The series will centre on a group of friends who went to Harvard together and are now facing down their forties and experiencing a range of success, or lack thereof, both professionally and domestically.
With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another, the series is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.
Stoller’s previous credits include Get Him to the Greek, Neighbors, Neighbors: Sorority Rising and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
“Nick is a comedic mastermind,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content.
“With Friends from College, he and Francesca have created a world that is both moving and very, very funny.
“We are thrilled to be working with them and this incredible cast, and look forward to audiences around the world laughing with and at these relatable characters/”
