The Apple TV Series ‘Platonic’ Explores the Dynamics of Gender Friendship

Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen ask the age-old question of whether men and women can be friends in the love comedy show Platonic. But the show starts to focus on a bigger question: Should they be friends?

Byrne and Rogen were inspired by their previous work with director Nicholas Stoller to make a real comedy that keeps viewers laughing.

Rogen says, “We revere comedy. And I think television especially has gotten to a place where, and God bless it, people are telling very dark and intense and heavy stories that deal with real heavy themes. This show I think wants to deal with very relatable themes, but we put a lot of effort into making something that is outwardly comedic and not bogged down by ideas and themes that hurt a truly fun and joyous experience.”

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne star in Platonic, a comedy that makes you feel things but is still fun to watch.

Platonic doesn’t try to answer all of life’s most important questions. On the other hand, Byrne says that people miss out on useful relationships when they don’t see how important friendships are.
