90s Nostalgia At The Ready! Netflix’s ‘Everything Sucks!’ Coming In Feb!
For those of you that went to high school in the 90s, Netflix has just the tv show for you to live out your memories (or nightmares) of your school days, in ‘Everything Sucks!‘
The series is set in the real-life town of Boring, Oregon in 1996. It’s a time free of smartphones… Free of iPods… If you wanted to watch a film, you had to physically go to a store and rent a VHS tape. I’m sure to most teens today it would feel like living in the stone age!
The quirky, funny coming of age story that revolves around Boring High School’s A/V Club and Drama Club – two crews of nerdy-edgy outsiders, who join forces to make a movie and endure the purgatory known as high school.
The series stars Peyton Kennedy (‘American Fable’, ‘The Captive’) and Jahi Winston (‘The New Edition Story’) as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh (‘Sully’, ‘Boardwalk Empire’) and Claudine Nako (‘Grimm’) as their respective parents.
The 10-episode, half-hour dramedy is created by Ben York Jones (‘Like Crazy’, ‘Newness’) and Michael Mohan (‘Save the Date’, ‘Pink Grapefruit’), who will both serve as executive producers.
‘Everything Sucks!‘ streams on to Netflix on Friday, 16th February 2018, and promises to be the full 90s high school experience: Desperate, heartfelt, awkward, exciting… and free of smartphones.
