Description

In the fall of 1999, NBC premiered a dramedy, canceled after one season, that would be remembered as the launching pad for some of the 21st century’s funniest talents. This ode to the short-lived Freaks and Geeks, famous for its painfully realistic take on adolescence, catapulted the careers of comedy luminaries Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jason Segel. Featuring behind-the-scenes revelations and reflections on its revival, cult status, and enduring appeal, this documentary shines a light on the television show that defined adolescence for a generation.
