Apple TV+ will launch a new comedy series, “Platonic,” starring Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen.
The series will be co-written by Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco (“Friends From College”) and 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.
The 10-episode, half-hour comedy explores the inner workings of platonic friendship. 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.
Apple TV+ is available at $4.99 a month with a seven-day free trial.
