Amanda Peet Joins ‘Your Friends And Neighbors’ Apple Series, Craig Gillespie To Direct


EXCLUSIVE: Amanda Peet (Dirty John) is set as a lead opposite Jon Hamm in Your Friends and Neighbors, Apple TV+’s upcoming drama series from Warrior creator Jonathan Tropper and Apple Studios. Craig Gillespie (Physical) is set to direct the first two episodes and executive produce.

Based on an original idea by Tropper, Your Friends and Neighbors stars Hamm as Coop, a recently divorced hedge fund manager who, after being fired, resorts to stealing from the wealthy residents in his tony upstate New York suburb in order to keep his family’s lifestyle afloat. These petty crimes begin to reinvigorate him until he breaks into the wrong house at the wrong time.

In addition to Hamm, Peet, whose role is being kept under wraps, joins previously cast Olivia Munn.

Tropper, who served as showrunner for Apple’s See and has an overall deal with the streamer, created Your Friends and Neighbors and will serve as showrunner. He will exec produce alongside Hamm, Gillespe and Connie Tavel.

This marks a return to Apple TV+ for Gillespie following his role as executive producer and director on the streamer’s original dramedy Physical, which ran for three seasons. He also was director and executive producer on Hulu’s Pam & Tommy, sharing in its Emmy nomination for Outstanding Limited Series. The I, Tonya director is repped by CAA and Sloane Offer Weber and Dern.

Peet headlined Season 2 of USA Network’s crime anthology series Dirty John. Her series credits also include Brockmire, Togetherness and Fatal Attraction. She is repped by Entertainment 360 and Hansen Jacobson Teller.
