"Platonic" is a 10-episode, half-hour comedy series in which Byrne and Rogen will play childhood friends who reconnect as adults, according to Apple:

A pair of former best friends who met in their youth (played by 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.

The series reunites Byrne and Rogen with director Nick Stoller following their collaboration on the "Neighbors" comedy films back in 2014-2016. Byrne, Rogen, and Conor Welch will serve as executive producers on the series.

A release date has yet to be announced.

Used to love him, but then he tweeted a lot during the pandemic.
Feel the same way. I used to view him as an affable everyman type of person, but now I honestly can't stand him. It's not that I disagree with his opinion, just that the level of hateful snark and arrogance became so off-putting that I can't look at him the same anymore. I feel that way about a lot of celebrities now, actually. The more they tweeted about "being in this together," the more it became clear they lived in a completely different reality than the rest of us and I can't take them seriously anymore.

I don't understand why people have to make it known to everyone else that they haven't wanted anything on Apple TV+ every time there is an article about Apple TV+. It's like posting in every article that mentions iPad and comment that I don't have one.

Also, how do you know you don't like anything on Apple TV+if you haven't watched anything on it?

Yeah when they were tweeting sad faces while sitting in their multimillion dollar mansions with 24/7 waitstaff and complaining how it felt like prison...

I once laughed at a Seth Rogen joke. Then I realized I just misheard what he said.
