Netflix has dropped the first trailer for the upcoming eight-episode series Friends From College. The show, led by Get Him To The Greek and Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller, boasts an impressive comedy ensemble including Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), Fred Savage (The Wonder Years), Jae Suh Park (The Mindy Project) and Nat Faxon (The Way, Way Back) just to name a few.
The character-driven show centres in on a group of friends who went to Harvard together and are facing down the barrel of their forties. Now, they must attempt to balance adult life with nostalgia for their past. The first look at Friends From College shows exactly how that balance can go completely out of whack. We open on midweek pre-drinks with Sam (Annie Parisse), Nick (Faxon), Max (Savage) and Ethan (Key) which quickly transforms into a night of drug-fuelled idiocy.
In typical Stoller fashion, the group of old friends proceed to get into some ridiculous inebriated hijinks. They tap dance goofily around the kitchen, devise their seemingly genius plan on a whiteboard with a permanent marker and glue their eyes in pure anticipation to the slow descent of a pizza slice down the living room wall, all the while waking up Ethan’s boyfriend, played by the hilariously rambunctious Billy Eichener.
Though the series emerged out of left-field, Stoller’s Friends From College looks entirely bingeable!
Gather your old friends and a couple of drinks for the release of Friends From College on July 14.
Just hope the night doesn’t get too out of hand!
