Nick Stoller Enrolls at Netflix

Nick Stoller, the comedic creative force behind Neighbors and its sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, will executive produce, direct and write a new eight-episode series for Netflix, Friends from College.

Stoller’s wife, Francesca Delbanco, will also serve as a writer and executive producer on the show, which is scheduled to start production this fall in New York. Netflix did not say when it will be available to subscribers.

The cast will include turns by Keegan-Michael Key of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, along with Cobie Smulders (Robin Scherbatsky on How I Met Your Mother), Annie Parisse (Andrea Zito on the HBO’s Vinyl), Nat Faxon (Ben Fox on Ben and Kate) and Fred Savage (Kevin Arnold on The Wonder Years).

The series, which is about friends who went to Harvard together and are now dealing with middle age, is described as “a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.” Delbanco and Stoller both attended Harvard University.
