Netflix to debut Blockbuster comedy series on November 3rd.
Melissa Fumero and Randall Park will star in the Netflix series Blockbuster. It is a 10-episode single-camera comedy coming on November 3rd. Fumero and Park will play staff members at the last Blockbuster Video in America. Blockbuster examines what it takes for a (now) small business to succeed against all odds. Park plays boss and movie-lover Timmy. Fumero is Eliza, his No. 2 in command. She left Harvard after one semester to start a family, but now things are on the rocks with her high school sweetheart. The rest of the cast includes Tyler Alvarez as aspiring filmmaker Carlos, Madeleine Arthur as naive but financially savvy Hannah, Olga Merediz as unofficial mother figure Connie, JB Smoove as a strip mall and party store owner Percy (also Timmy’s best friend), and Kamaia Fairburn as Percy’s smart and sometimes scary teen daughter who works at Blockbuster with Timmy.
Timmy Yoon (Randall Park) is an analog dreamer living in a 5G world. While everyone else is streaming entertainment, he’s operating the very last Blockbuster and fighting to stay relevant. With the help of his staff — including his long-time crush Eliza (Melissa Fumero) — the lively bunch are hoping they can offer the community something that big corporations can’t: human connection.
