Blockbuster, a Netflix comedy series starring Randall Park about the flagship movie rental store, has set a November 3 premiere date. The streaming service will release all ten episodes of the half-hour comedy at once.

Park portrays Timmy Yoon, an analogue dreamer in charge of the United States last operating Blockbuster Video. Timmy and his colleagues must work to remind their community that the local store can provide the human connection that large corporations cannot.

Melissa Fumero as Eliza Walker, Tyler Alvarez as Carlos Herrera, Madeleine Arthur as Hannah Hadman, and Olga Merediz as Connie Serrano join Park in the cast. J.B. Smoove as Percy Scott and Kamaia Fairburn as Kayla Scott appear as recurring guests on the show.


Vanessa Ramos is the show's creator, executive producer, and showrunner. Her previous work includes Superstore and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The show is produced by Universal Television, and its writers and executive producers are David Caspe and Jackie Clarke. Davis Entertainment is also executive produced by John Davis and John Fox.

Recently, Vanessa Ramos signed an overall deal with Universal Television. Under the pact, she will develop and produce projects for a variety of television platforms for Universal TV.

“We are thrilled to continue building our relationship with Vanessa, who is an extremely talented writer and has contributed greatly to every project she’s been a part of,” said Jim Donnelly, EVP Of Comedy Development, Universal Television. “Her sense of humour and range of ideas will add greatly to our roster at Universal Television, and we are excited to be a part of her future.”

Ramos began her television writing career as a staffer on the Emmy-nominated series Comedy Central Roast.

“I could not be more thrilled to make it official with Universal Television,” said Ramos. “The whole team has been nothing but supportive and nurturing of my voice as a writer throughout my career, and no one said anything when I pitched a show while wearing sweatpants. I’m looking forward to collaborating on all sorts of fun projects together that might also be pitched in sweatpants.”
