First-Look At Netflix Dramedy Series, 'Everything Sucks!' Starring Jahi Winston

We've got a new promo, release date and first-look photos from Netflix's upcoming '90s set comedy-drama series, Everything Sucks.

Jahi Winston (Proud Mary, The New Edition Story) is one of the leads for the show's ensemble cast.

The series is described as a quirky, funny coming of age story that follows two groups of high school misfits - an A/V club and a Drama club - who collide in 1996 Oregon.

The show is set to premiere on February 16. Winston and will co-stars with Peyton Kennedy as students Luke O'Neil and Kate Messner.

Joining them are actors who will play their respective parents: Claudine Nako and Patch Darragh. The series also features Sydney Sweeney, Elijah Stevenson, Quinn Liebling and Rio Mangini.

The 10-episode, half-hour dramedy is created by Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan, who will both serve as executive producers. Mohan will also serve as director for the bulk of the series, with Ry Russo-Young directing episodes as well.

In a recent interview with Shadow and Act, Winston spoke about the show, saying, "It’s amazing. I’ve never been a part of something like this before. It’s just a very youthful and nostalgic environment like the show and the premise of the show. I’m excited for you guys to see that at the top of 2018."
