Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco’s Netflix comedy FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE has landed a boatload of actors including the trio of Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, and Fred Savage. Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon, and Jae Suh Park are also joining the ensemble comedy from the Neighbors director and his wife/writing partner.
As the title of the comedy suggests, the eight-episode series follows a group of friends who attended Harvard and are now facing down their 40s and experiencing a range of success, or lack thereof, professionally and domestically. The series is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.
In addition to his successful run on the Comedy Central sketch show Key & Peele, Key also appeared on the big screen in Keanu and can be currently be seen in the indie dramedy Don’t Think Twice. He can be seen next in Why Him? with Bryan Cranston and James Franco. He is repped by UTA and Principato-Young Entertainment.
Smulders’s top TV credit is her role in the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother. Since then, she has been busy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Maria Hill in the Avengers movies and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. She can be seen next in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back opposite Tom Cruise. She is repped by UTA and ROAR.
Savage has done a fair share of work behind the camera as a director inluding upcoming episodes of Casual and 2 Broke Girls. He was most recently seen in front of the camera in the Fox comedy The Grinder opposite Rob Lowe. He is repped by WME.
