New Farrelly Brothers Roku Original ‘The Now’ Premieres December 10 on The Roku Channel

Dave Franco, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jimmy Tatro, Bill Murray, Alyssa Milano, Pete Davidson, and Daryl Hannah, star in new comedy from Academy Award(R) winners Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Roku, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU) today announced “The Now,” a new comedy from Academy Award winners Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly, will premiere exclusively on The Roku Channel on December 10.

All 14-episodes of the series will be available to viewers of The Roku Channel in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. for free at launch.

Peter Farrelly stated, “I wanted to make a show about living in the present because I personally have lived too much in the future and the past and I think a lot of people do. We worry about the future, and we have regrets about the past, yet we are only ever living in the now. The future and the past are just concepts, but all life takes place in the present. If you want to make changes in your life you have to make them in the now.”

Bobby Farrelly added, “We knew that we needed a stellar cast to tell this story properly, and that’s what we got. Collaborating with Dave Franco, O’Shea Jackson, Jimmy Tatro, Bill Murray, Alyssa Milano, and Daryl Hannah was an unforgettable experience, and the result is something that we’re very proud of. We can’t wait to share it with everyone on The Roku Channel.”

The dark comedy examines what exactly makes life worth living through the eyes of Ed Poole (Dave Franco). For Ed, life isn’t going as he planned. However, a tragic event causes him to rethink his outlook, forcing him to go after what he loves, cherish the people closest to him and live in The Now.

“I’ve never needed ‘The Now’ more than now,” said Colin Davis, Roku’s Head of Original Scripted Programming. “This is a show that tackles tough but universal challenges with levity and comedy that only this excellent cast and creators can deliver. The Roku Channel is on a strong path to being the best destination for premium, bespoke, original comedies and ‘The Now’ more than delivers.”

Joining Dave Franco in “The Now” are O’Shea Jackson Jr, Jimmy Tatro, and Daryl Hannah in starring roles. Bill Murray, Alyssa Milano, Pete Davidson, Rob Yang, are featured in recurring roles throughout the series. “The Now” was directed by Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly. It was written by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, Steve Leff and Pete Jones. Steve Golin and Jeff Okin served as executive producers. The series was produced by Anonymous Content.
