Trivia

Michael Showalter taught screenwriting at New York University film school for six years. During his time there, two students (Sarah-Violet Bloss and Charles Rogers) impressed Showalter and wanted to work more with them, so he brought them on to the staff of his Netflix show, "Wet Hot American Summer" and began developing "Search Party".

Fun show, entertaining and enjoyable
24 November 2016 | by mdflladySee all my reviews

This show is fun! It's characters are shallow and the actors portraying them make that somewhat OK if not a little annoying in a fun way. The actors are doing a great job. It's a dark comedy and it's entertaining. It's a little ridiculous which adds to the appeal. The show demonstrates what it can feel like to find something and someone meaningful in life. And how that can change in a sometimes brief time period. Search party in that they're searching for this missing "friend" (acquaintance?) and searching for more substance in their own lives. A little off-beat and enjoyable. I look forward to watching more episodes.
