Netflix ‘Friends From College” Balances Adult Life with Nostalgia for the Past


Netflix presents: An original comedy series about acting your age. FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE is a new Netflix Original Series from Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco. The husband and wife team serve as executive producers and writers on the series and Stoller directs all eight episodes.

The show centers 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. I think we can all relate to that.

The eight episode series features an all star cast including Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele, Keanu, Don’t Think Twice), Cobie Smulders (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Avengers, How I Met Your Mother), 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 teaser trailer features most of the cast – but what stood out the most was watching Fred Savage do a line of coke off a table. Check it out for yourself below.

Coming to Netflix July 14.
