Netflix's Friends From College follows six Harvard alums in their 40s living in New York City and the complicated relationships they have with each other. With an all-star comedic cast, the series brings humor and absurdity to the relatable challenges of career, family, relationships and just trying to hold it all together. Starring Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage, Jae Suh Park, Annie Parisse and Nat Faxon, the second season returns to Netflix in 2019. Sit down with co-creators and husband and wife duo Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco as they discuss the process of creating a show together and how they balance writing and directing a series while also raising a family.
