Netflix has a new sitcom on the way. It's called 'Friends From College', and it'll be written and executive produced by the husband and wife team of Nick Stoller and Francesco Delbanco.

Stollar ('Bad Neighbours', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') will also direct all eight episodes.

It will star Keegan-Michael Key ('Key & Peele', 'Don't Think Twice'), Cobie Smulders ('How I Met Your Mother'), Annie Parisse ('Vinyl'), Nat Faxon ('American Dad'), Fred Savage ('The Wonder Years'), and Jae Suh Park ('The Big Short').

It focusses on a group of friends facing their forties, with all the domestic and professional struggles that involves. It'll explore their old friendships from when they were all at Harvard together, former romantic entanglements and how they balance adult life while remaining nostalgic for the past.

"Nick is a comedic mastermind," said Cindy Holland, Netflix vice president of original content. "With 'Friends From College', he and Francesca have created a world that is both moving and very, very funny. We are thrilled to be working with them and this incredible cast, and look forward to audiences around the world laughing with and at these relatable characters."

Filming will start in the autumn in New York City.
