Check out the ‘Wet Hot American Summer – Ten Years Later’ Trailer!

The gang’s all here — and then some! Check out the the trailer for Wet Hot American Summer – Ten Years Later:

Let’s get the timeline in order. In 2001, former State members David Wain and Michael Showalter made Wet Hot American Summer, an over-the-top comedy set during the last day at a sleep away summer camp in 1981. The feature starred then lesser known talent such as Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, and Elizabeth Banks, among many others. Though all were roughly 30 years of age at the time, they were playing teenage counselors at the summer camp. While it wasn’t a critical or box office darling at the time of its release, the flick garnered a tremendous cult following on DVD.

Cut to 14 years later – the aforementioned actors are among the biggest stars on the planet. Wain and Showalter are able to bring EVERYONE back for an eight-episode prequel series on Netflix entitled Wet Hot American Summer – First Day of CampThe cast is now in their 40s, yet still playing the same age as they did in the original flick.

As promised at the end of the original movie, Ten Years Later, shows (most of) the original cast, now in their “20s,” reuniting to see what kind of people they have blossomed into. As the trailer suggests – hilarity is bound to ensue.

Netflix will premiere all eight episodes of Wet Hot American Summer – Ten Years Later on August 4.

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
