Apple has ordered Platonic, a new comedy series starring Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen, for its Apple TV+ streaming service.
The series, co-written by Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco (Friends from College),will be produced for Apple by Sony Pictures Television. Platonic reunites Byrne and Rogen with director Nick Stoller following their collaboration on the Neighbors films.
It’s a 10-episode, half-hour comedy that explores the inner workings of platonic friendship. Here’s the summary: “A pair of former best friends who met in their youth (played by 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.”
In addition to writing, Stoller will direct. Rose Byrne, Seth Rogen and Conor Welch will serve as executive producers on the series.
