Netflix released their first 90s-infused announcement trailer for the upcoming series, Everything Sucks!, which follows a 1990s high school, set in Boring (yes. Boring), Oregon, and two friends who join forces to make a movie.
The 10-episode half-hour dramedy was created by Like Crazy writer Ben York Jones and Save the Date writer/director Michael Mohan. Everything Sucks! courts two young up-and-comers Peyton Kennedy, who is best known for Odd Squad, American Fable, and The Captive; and Jahi Winston, who is best known for Feed The Beast and The New Edition Story. Kennedy and Winston play members of the local high school’s A/V Club and Drama Club, groups of uncool outsiders who must come together to take on the purgatory otherwise known as high school.
Check out the teaser for Everything Sucks! below:
There is everything here to whip you back to the 1990s: CD walkmans, pop-up video bubbles, and of course, a little bit of Everclear’s “Everything to Everyone.” The teaser also introduces the cast of teens but it doesn’t appear that any of this footage is from the actual show so look for more teasers for Everything Sucks! to pop up soon.
The series also stars Patch Darragh (Sully, The Path) and Claudine Nako (Grimm) taking on the roles of their respective parents.
Everything Sucks! will premiere on Netflix on February 16, 2018.
