Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne reconnect and somehow cause destruction to multiple homes in the first trailer for the Apple TV+ series Platonic.
The 10-episode comedy launches May 24 from co-creators Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco, who co-wrote and directed the project. The cast includes Luke Macfarlane, Tre Hale, Carla Gallo and Andrew Lopez.
Platonic follows Sylvia (Byrne) and Will (Rogen), former best friends who suffered a falling out and reunite as they approach midlife. The trailer teases the chaos that ensues after they begin spending a lot of time together, as seen by the pair destroying a garage, Sylvia knocking over wine bottles in a store and Will walking through a glass door.
Later in the trailer, Sylvia tries her best to explain to her husband (Macfarlane) why she’s been spending so much time with her resurfaced friend. “It’s embarrassing being a mess in front of you,” Sylvia says. “And Will’s a much bigger mess than I am.”
Platonic hails from Sony Pictures Television. Byrne, Rogen, Stoller, Delbanco and Conor Welch are executive producers.
Byrne’s recent credits include leading the Apple TV+ series Physical, while Rogen appeared in last year’s Hulu series Pam & Tommy. The pair starred together in the 2014 feature Neighbors and its 2016 sequel, both of which were directed by Stoller.
Platonic launches its first three half-hour episodes May 24, with new episodes debuting weekly on Wednesdays.
