Apple TV+ released the first trailer for the upcoming musical comedy series “Schmigadoon!” on Friday.
The series stars “Saturday Night Live’s” Cecily Strong and “Key & Peele’s” Keegan Michael-Key as a couple on a backpacking trip designed to reinvigorate their relationship who stumble onto a magical town living in a 1940s musical. They soon discover that they can’t leave until they find “true love.”
Co-created by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, “Schmigadoon!” is described as a parody of iconic Golden Age musicals, including the one that inspired the show’s title.
