Freaks and Geeks: The Documentary


2 Hr. 2 Min.

Screening format: DCP

Though it lasted only a single season, the influence of NBC's dramedy Freaks and Geeks reverberated throughout the entire entertainment industry. Introducing us to an entire constellation of stars (Seth Rogen, Martin Starr, and Busy Philipps to name a few), its balance of comedy and pathos moved beyond the stereotypical portrayal of teenage life, with that nuance tracing a direct line to our current "golden age of television." Covering development to cancellation and everything in between, we promise that this is one high school reunion you won't want to miss.
