With the original cast...
Netflix is reportedly taking a trip back to Camp Firewood. Variety reports that the service is looking to develop an original series based on the 2001 comedy Wet Hot American Summer that would involve the original cast--Michael Showalter, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Elizabeth Banks, David Hyde Pierce and Michael Ian Black--returning with Showalter and David Wain executive producing.
The plan is reportedly to have each cast members film their scenes over the course of a few days, which would then be scattered throughout the season meaning that not everyone would appear in each episode.
The series would run ten episodes and is envisioned as a prequel, with the cast playing high school-age characters despite their current (distinctly non-high school) ages.
