Two former best friends reconnect just in time to share their mid-life crises in Apple TV Plus’ Platonic, starring and executive produced by Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen.
When Sylvia (Byrne) hears Will (Rogen) is getting a divorce, her husband Charlie (Luke Macfarlane) encourages her to reach out to him. At first things are awkward, but then the two get back to their old tricks, destabilizing everyone else in their paths.
“It’s embarrassing being a mess in front of you,” Sylvia tells Charlie. “And Will’s a much bigger mess than I am.”
Platonic also stars Tre Hale, Andrew Lopez and Carla Gallo. It’s co-created, directed, and co-written by Nick Stoller and Francesca Delbanco and produced by Sony Pictures Television, where Stoller’s Global Solutions has an overall deal. Stoller, Delbanco and Conor Welch executive produce along with Rogen and Byrne.
Platonic debuts its first three episodes globally Wednesday, May 24 on Apple TV Plus.
