Netflix Orders Coming of Age Dramedy Everything Sucks!

Netflix has announced new ten-part dramedy Everything Sucks! created by Ben York Jones (Like Crazy) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date), about an A/V club and a drama club who collide in 1996 Oregon.

Everything Sucks! stars Peyton Kennedy (American Fable) and Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story) as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh (Sully) and Claudine Nako (Grimm) as their respective parents.

Jones and Mohan said: “Some of our favorite shows of all time – The Wonder Years, Happy Days, That 70s Show, Freaks and Geeks – looked back at bygone eras with 20 years of hindsight.”

“We think this is a great time to take a look back at high school and relive the fashion, music, and attitudes of the mid-’90’s the way we remember it. Not sensationalized, not watered down; but desperate, heartfelt, awkward, and exciting.”

Everything Sucks! will premiere in 2018.
