As reported by Deadline, Ali Wong and Randall Park have signed on to star in an untitled comedy film for Netflix about a pair of childhood friends who reconnect as adults and fall in love despite “vastly different socioeconomic situations.” Wong and Park wrote the movie along with Michael Golamco, and Netflix is reportedly “moving quickly” to find a director. That’s about all we know at this early stage, but at the very least this news is an indication that Netflix is willing to make it’s relatively sparse collection of original comedy movies a bit less dependent on Adam Sandler and his friends—even if those movies are reportedly very popular.

This movie will also be a sort of ABC sitcom team-up, as Wong currently appears in the network’s American Housewife and Park is the star of Fresh Off The Boat.
