Netflix is a predictable beast. For every hour long drama it churns out, it brings on two comedy half hours. Like any network, these shows vary in terms of quality but some of them are actually well done. Writing and cast is what makes a half hour strong. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt survives because of the crew behind it. Flaked flaked because it felt self-important. The streamer's latest series, Friends From College, is one of many dark comedies with a stacked cast.
Cast way back in August of 2016, Keegan-Michael Key, Fred Savage, Colbie Smulders, Nat Faxon and Billy Eichner lead the eight episode series. Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco created the show that follows Harvard grads in their forties experiencing a wide range of success. Friends From College begins aring on July 14.
