    Netflix dropped the first trailer for Blockbuster Friday, offering a glimpse of the upcoming series from Vanessa Ramos (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Superstore), David Caspe (Happy Endings), and Jackie Clarke (Superstore, Happy Endings). 

    Set in the titular store, Blockbuster follows Timmy Yoon (Randall Park), a man so in love with movies he's stayed at his high school job well into adulthood - managing his hometown Blockbuster Video. When he discovers his store is the last Blockbuster in America, he'll go to whatever lengths necessary to keep the lights on and his friends employed. The season will consist of 10 episodes. 

    In addition to Park, Blockbuster stars Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), J.B. Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and Olga Merediz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) alongside the young ensemble cast.
