Alicia Silverstone (Clueless) and Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains) have joined the cast, not as babysitters – that would be supremely weird – but as parents. Read on to learn more about their characters and what we know about the show so far.

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the 2001 Sundance comedy hit was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally coming.
Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is a new eight episode continuation of the goofy camp comedy that brings back (almost) all of the original cast members again as we flash forward to their lives in 1991. It looks just as insane as the prequel series was, and it even has some new cast members joining the fun.

In recent years it’s become pretty common for filmmakers to put together proof-of-concept trailers to give studio executives a visual aid for pitches. Sometimes they are edited together from a mash-up of existing movies (which is very time consuming), and other times they involve the filmmakers spending their own money and time to shoot it on spec for real (which is more costly). We’ve featured some of these on /Film in the past, including Kevin Tancharoen‘s pitch trailer for The Hunger Games.

Networks usually spend millions of dollars to cast and create pilot episodes, most of which are never aired to the public. So what you’re about to see after the jump is unique, a proof-of-concept pitch trailer for a television series that doesn’t yet exist.
