Netflix gets its own 'Friends'

2017-07-14 10:36

New York — Cobie Smulders, a star of the Netflix series Friends From College, says this ensemble comedy is happily reminiscent of her long-running sitcom hit, How I Met Your Mother. She loves being part of group scenes.

Meanwhile, Keegan-Michael Key says being on this new show is a welcome change from his sketch-comedy series, Key & Peele, where he and Jordan Peele not only had to perform but also produce and do much of the writing. Now, Key is glad to not be in charge.

The eight-episode series is about a half-dozen friends from college who find themselves happily reunited 20 years later. But then not-so-happy complications arise.

Fred Savage, Nat Faxon, Annie Parisse and Jae Suh Park also star in the show, which Netflix will release on Friday.
