Many of us (over the age of 25) recall the cult comedy of the early 2000s, Wet Hot American Summer. Featuring an all-star cast, including 90s alt-babe Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce (of Frasier fame), Law and Order: SVU‘s own Christopher Meloni, Paul Rudd (post-Clueless but just before Anchorman), Amy Poehler (before Parks and Rec) and Bradley Cooper (pre-Hangover), among others, the movie pokes fun at 80’s teen summer camp comedies in the best way possible.
Now, the unstoppable force that is Netflix is bringing back the cast (along with some great additions) for one of its original series, and the trailer is enough to make any fan of the movie giddy as hell:
I’m especially psyched to see Don Draper (okay, okay, Jon Hamm) and the amazing H. Jon Benjamin (of Home Movies and the–in my opinion lesser, Archer) joining Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, et al for what will hopefully/surely be one of Netflix’s best comedies yet.
The laughs begin July 31st.
