“Blockbuster” Trailer: Randall Park Operates Video Store for Netflix

Superstore and Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Vanessa Ramos created the series.

Netflix sitcom Blockbuster is just salt in the old tale that streaming killed the video rental star.

Randall Park directs the series as Timmy Yoon, officially described as an “analog dreamer living in a 5G world” where he runs the last remaining Blockbuster video store in the country. According to the official synopsis, Timmy and his staff, including his longtime crush Eliza (Melissa Fumero), then struggle to stay relevant. The only way to succeed is to remind their community that they offer something big companies can’t: human connections.

The series also stars Tyler Alvarez, Madeleine Arthur, Olga Merediz, JB Smoove and Kamaia Fairburn. “Blockbuster” starts on November 3 on Netflix.

Superstore and Brooklyn Nine-Nine producer Vanessa Ramos developed the series with David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jackie Clarke (Superstore, Happy Endings) also serving as writers and executive producers functioned. John Davis and John Fox are also executive producers for Davis Entertainment. “Blockbuster” is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.

The actually last Blockbuster store in the USA will remain in Bend, Oregon from 2019. While the Netflix series isn’t set in actual location, lead actress Park noted that the 10-episode season is firmly centered in the four walls of the fictionalized camp itself while “the company itself collapses.”

“Our little family working together in the business is somehow gaining the strength and determination to keep it alive,” Park told Entertainment Weekly, noting that while he was producing the “groundbreaking” AAPI ABC series Fresh Off the Boat,” Blockbuster” reflects a “diverse group of people” that more closely resembles Park’s off-screen life.

“Growing up in a very diverse neighborhood, it was almost like my group of friends growing up were of every race,” Park said. “It was almost too perfect, it was like a commercial. And shows, I feel, have always had a hard time capturing that reality. And I think Fresh off the Boat is great because having an Asian American family was groundbreaking and it reflects a part of my life. But this diverse group of people is also part of my life.”

Netflix head of comedy Tracey Pakosta called the series “ultimately the story of a dedicated group of employees with a lot of heart.”

“Blockbuster” starts on November 3 on Netflix.
