Apple has ordered a new ten-episode comedy series titled "Platonic" starring Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen.
“Platonic” explores the inner workings of platonic friendship. A pair of former best friends who met in their youth (Byrne and Rogen) reconnect as adults and try to mend the rift that led to their falling out. As their friendship becomes more consuming, it destabilizes their lives and causes them to reevaluate their choices.
Rogen and Byrne will executive produce as well along with Conor Welch of Stoller Global Solutions. Sony Pictures Television will produce, with Stoller currently under an overall deal at the studio.
This marks the second Apple project for Byrne, who is also attached to star in the 1980s aerobics dramedy "Physical" on Apple TV+ at some time in the not-too-distant future. For more on this story, check out the full Variety report.
