*Keegan-Michael Key will join Cobie Smulders, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon, Fred Savage and Jae Suh Park in the upcoming Netflix series “Friends from College,” the streaming service announced Monday.
The eight episode comedy 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.
Husband and wife team Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco will serve as executive producers and writers on the series and Stoller will also direct all eight episodes.
Production will begin this fall in New York.
