The streaming service Netflix seems to be creating so much content for its subscribers that it can literally release a new trailer every day to promote that content.
On Feb. 16, Netflix will stream the first season of Everything Sucks!, the new series from exec. producers Ben York Jones (Newness) and Michael Mohan, and the network has released the first full-length trailer for it just one month after the teaser.
The high school-based series stars Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Winston as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil with Patch Darragh and Claudine Nako playing their respective parents.The first season is made up of ten half-hour episodes.
The official synopsis for the series is:
The 90s high school experience: Desperate, heartfelt, awkward, exciting, and free of smartphones. Set in the real life town of Boring, Oregon in 1996, Everything Sucks! is a quirky, funny coming of age story that revolves around Boring High School’s A/V Club and Drama Club— two crews of nerdy-edgy outsiders, who join forces to make a movie and endure the purgatory known as high school.
Maybe it isn’t too big a surprise that Netflix would make a ’90s-set show about high school, since it had such big success with the ’80s-set Stranger Things. Everything Sucks! seems much more grounded in reality ala Judd Apatow’s Freaks and Geeks or Square Pegs, the ’80s series that gave Sarah Jessica Parker her start. The new trailer also brilliantly uses the Cranberries tune “Linger” which was released in the early ’90s and is particularly poignant with the recent death of singer Dolores O’Riordan.
