Roku just caused a stir with the announcement and new trailer for their drama series, The now, with Dave Franco, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jimmy Tatro, Bill Murray, Alyssa Milano, Pete Davidson and Daryl Hannah. Ed (Dave Franco) finds out that his brother committed suicide while simultaneously attempting the same thing. As Ed asks his therapist (Bill Murray), “What are the odds? The tragedy forces Ed to rethink his lifestyle, forget about the past, stop worrying about the future and start living in the present. Or, as Peter and Bobby Farrelly say, live in The now.
Peter Farrelly said: “I wanted to do a show about living in the present because personally I have lived too much in the future and the past and I think a lot of people are doing it. We worry about the future and regret the past, but we only live in the present. The future and the past are only concepts, but all life takes place in the present. If you want to make changes in your life, you have to make them now. ”
Bobby Farrelly added, “We knew 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 has been an unforgettable experience, and the result is something we are very proud of. We can’t wait to share it with everyone on the Roku Channel.
