Netflix has renewed the comedy-of-discomfort series Friends from College for a second season.
Friends from College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.
The series premieres on Netflix on July 14th.
Friends from College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past when a group of friends from college begin to deal with the fact that, as they reach their forties, things haven’t necessarily worked out as they hoped.
Friends From College stars Keegan Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon and Jae Suh Park – and will premiere on Netflix this summer.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – based on the novel by Lee Child – is both a typical and atypical Tom Cruise action movie. It has a decent plot; plenty of action, chases (on foot and by car), clever solutions to difficult problems, and a lead female role that is an equal protagonist – and another one that could almost be a kid Reacher.
Directed by Edward Zwick (Glory, The Last Samurai), Never Go Back is plain, (kinda) old-fashioned action movie fun.
Actor Clea DuVall makes her directorial debut with The Intervention, in which a group of friends – under the guise of getting together for a fun weekend – attempt a ‘marriage intervention’ to persuade Ruby and Peter to divorce.
Things do not go precisely as planned.
Sundance sensation The Intervention will be released on DVD on November 29th. Read on for details.
Netflix has announced a new comedy series, Friends from College. The series will follow a group of Harvard graduates who, now in their forties, have had varying degrees of success.
The series comes form Nick Stoller (Neighbors, Neighbors: Sorority Rising, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) and Francesca Delbanco. The couple will serve as writers and executive producers on the show with Stoller directing all eight episodes.
Friends from College will begin production in New York this fall.
Three years ago, Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers blew everyone away by taking a group off characters who should never have been in the same room together and making us believe that they could save the world together. It was fresh and new and shiny.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is not fresh and new and shiny – but it is a fresh look at why these characters should, in fact, be in the same room even as cracks appear in the team that foreshadow less happy things to come.
