Netflix Orders Coming of Age Dramedy ‘Everything Sucks!’

Upcoming Half-Hour is Reminiscent of 'The Wonder Years,' 'Happy Days' and 'That'70s Show'

Netflix has greenlit 10 episodes of half-hour dramedy “Everything Sucks!” for 2018, which follows two groups, an A/V club and a Drama club, who collide in 1996 Oregon. The series stars Peyton Kennedy (“American Fable,” “The Captive”) and Jahi Winston (“The New Edition Story”) as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh (“Sully,” “Boardwalk Empire”) and Claudine Nako (“Grimm”) as their respective parents. The series also features Sydney Sweeney (“Emaline”), Elijah Stevenson (“Oliver”), Quinn Liebling (“Tyler”) and Rio Mangini (“McQuaid”).
“Everything Sucks!” is created by Ben York Jones (“Like Crazy,” “Newness”) and Michael Mohan (“Save the Date,” “Pink Grapefruit”), who will both serve as executive producers. Mohan will also serve as director for the bulk of the series, with Ry Russo-Young directing episodes as well.

Jeff Pinkner (“Lost,” “Fringe”), Scott Rosenberg (“October Road,” “Life on Mars”), Josh Appelbaum (“Alias,” “October Road”) and André Nemec (“Alias,” “October Road”) from Midnight Radio will also serve as executive producers.
