Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne are attached to star in a new comedy series that has been ordered at Apple, Variety has learned.
Titled “Platonic,” the half-hour series will see the pair reunite with Nick Stoller, who directed them in both of the “Neighbors” films and also worked on the screenplay of the sequel. The show has received a 10-episode order.
“Platonic” explores the inner workings of platonic friendship. A pair of former best friends who met in their youth (Byrne and Rogen) reconnect as adults and try to mend the rift that led to their falling out. As their friendship becomes more consuming, it destabilizes their lives and causes them to reevaluate their choices.
Hey, whatever gives me an additional, non-Ted Lasso show worth recommending from the service.
