Friends from College, a new show shot partly on the East End, debuted on Netflix last week. Series stars Cobie Smulders, Keegan Michael-Kay, Fred Savage and others filmed scenes at Mattituck’s Macari Vineyards and at additional North Fork locations last fall.
Here’s Netflix’s description of the new comedy:
A group of friends from Harvard played by Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max) and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) are facing down their forties. With interwoven and oftentimes complicated relationships with one another Friends from College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.The series is executive produced by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors, Neighbors: Sorority Rising, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek), who also directed all eight episodes. Francesca Delbanco serves as an EP and writer.
We’ve seen the show, and think it’s good fun, if not the deepest or most sophisticated comedy there is. Check out the trailer below.
