Netflix is heading to Staten Island this summer.
The streamer has set a July 30 premiere date for Lorne Michaels-produced comedy Staten Island Summer.
The coming-of-age film, which was penned by Saturday Night Live head writer Colin Jost and directed by Rhys Thomas, tells the story of a group of lifeguards at the Great Kills Swim Club and their attempt to throw one more great party before summer ends and they leave for college.
The cast is packed with Jost’s current and former SNL colleagues, including Cecily Strong, Bobby Moynihan, Fred Armisen, Will Forte and Kate McKinnon. They star alongside Ashley Greene, comedian Jim Gaffigan, rapper Method Man, Kate Walsh, Gina Gershon, Graham Phillips, Zack Pearlman and Vincent Pastore.
“I’m very happy that Staten Island Summer has found the perfect home,” says Michaels. “Netflix has quickly become the biggest supporter of what’s new and exciting in comedy.” Adds Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos: “We are excited to team with Lorne Michaels, Rhys Thomas and Colin Jost to bring this hilarious coming age comedy to Netflix members around the world. Colin’s script and the appearances of so many SNL cast members make Staten Island Summer the perfect summer comedy for fans.”

The ladies from Desperate Housewives and Private Practice? Combined with Sean from Game of Thrones? DONE.
The drama ANY DAY stars Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives, The Young and the Restless), Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings), and Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice).
This inspirational story is about an ex-fighter who recently got out of prison for manslaughter. He struggles to get on the right path and be a role model for his young nephew, and along the way, meets a woman who helps him piece his life back together. This is a wonderful, powerful story of love, redemption, faith, and acceptance.
Kate Walsh is the first to admit that plastic surgeons aren’t always portrayed accurately.
“When people think plastic surgeon, they might think it’s sort of a vapid profession,” Walsh tells PEOPLE. “But the truth of the matter is they can change people’s lives.”
A few years ago, Walsh, 47, began lending her support to Operation Smile, a nonprofit that provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the world.
With a break in her schedule, the actress was able to travel to Mexico in early April, to see first-hand the work the organization is doing.
