Netflix is starting to have some major success in courting teen audiences considering the popularity of Stranger Things, Degrassi: First Class, and 13 Reasons Why, and they’re continuing to invest in younger-skewing programming. The streaming service ordered a tween comedy called “Best Worst Weekend Ever.”
The new series revolves around four friends who celebrate their last weekend before high school by partying, destroying a house, losing a dog, and attempting to get into a comic con.
The project comes from Robin Stein, a writer whose credits that include a number of children’s television shows and the ‘90s family comedy Step by Step, and Dan Franklin.
According to THR, Jeremy Garelick (The Break-Up) will head up the project as showrunner and executive producer.
