The 1999 series Freaks and Geeks was a perfect storm of greatness. It was an amazing coming of age series from Judd Apatow and Paul Feig that helped launch the careers of several high-profile creative talent in Hollywood. Unfortunately, it was canceled way too soon.
If you're a fan of the series, you'll be happy to learn that there is a documentary coming to TV next year that focuses on the short-lived series. In a way, this will give fans the reunion of these actors that they've been waiting for.
The doc was confirmed by Feig when he was asked on Twitter if the documentary was really happening. This was his reply:
Yes it is. https://t.co/lpKHcQNsmo— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) September 25, 2017
Then actor Samm Levine tweeted the following, double confirming the Doc!
It's pretty exciting that this is happening. It will be fun to learn about all the behind-the-scenes stories during the development of this incredible series.
Here is a list of the people involved with the show, many of which will most likely be involved with the doc: James Franco, Samm Levine (Inglourious Basterds), Linda Cardellini (Mad Men), Seth Rogen, Martin Starr (Silicon Valley) , John Francis Daley (co-writer of Spider-Man: Homecoming), and Jason Segel.
Other actors that were a part of the series include: Ben Foster, Shia LaBeouf, Lizzy Caplan, Tom Wilson (Back to the Future), Ann Dowd, Rashida Jones, Jason Schwartzman, and Ben Stiller.
If you've never watched Freaks and Geeks, you really need to. It's such a wonderful, funny, and honest show. I can't wait to see how this doc turns out.
