Apple TV+ Orders Jon Hamm Drama ‘Your Friends and Neighbors’

Apple TV+ has ordered “Your Friends and Neighbors,” a new drama series developed by Apple Studios that will star Jon Hamm (“The Morning Show,” “Fargo,” “Mad Men”), who will also serve as executive producer, and based on an original idea by acclaimed screenwriter, producer and novelist Jonathan Tropper (“See,” “The Adam Project,” “Warrior,” “Banshee”).
In “Your Friends and Neighbors,” Hamm will star in the lead role as ‘Coop,’ a recently divorced hedge fund manager who, after being fired, resorts to stealing from the wealthy residents in his tony upstate New York suburb in order to keep his family’s lifestyle afloat. These petty crimes begin to reinvigorate him until he breaks into the wrong house at the wrong time.
Hailing from Apple Studios, the new series is created by Tropper who will serve as showrunner and executive producer under his overall deal with Apple TV+. Hamm will executive produce alongside Connie Tavel (“Confess Fletch”).
The new project marks the latest collaboration for Hamm and Apple TV+, and the first time he will anchor an ongoing series since “Mad Men.” Hamm recently starred in the critically acclaimed, AFI Award-winning third season of Apple’s Emmy, SAG and Critics Choice Award-winning series, “The Morning Show.”
Under his overall deal with Apple TV+ and his shingle Tropper Ink, Tropper also served as showrunner and executive producer of global hit Apple Original series “See,” starring Jason Momoa.  He has authored six bestselling novels, and written films such as “The Adam Project,” starring Ryan Reynolds, “This Is Where I Leave You,” starring Jason Bateman and Tina Fey, and “Kodachrome,” starring Ed Harris, Jason Sudeikis and Elizabeth Olsen.
