Never has a show seemed more up my alley than Schmigadoon! – the new musical comedy series coming to Apple TV+. Like, musicals, Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key, plus romance, and did I mention there’s singing? And it’s a comedy? Inject this into my veins ASAP, because I just found my new obsession.
I might have already watched the trailer like 9834 times, but who’s counting?
The full description for the show, in case you still need to be convinced, or something, is:
A parody of iconic musicals, “Schmigadoon!” is a new musical comedy series executive produced by Lorne Michaels and starring Emmy Award nominee Cecily Strong and Emmy Award winner Keegan-Michael Key as a couple on a backpacking trip designed to reinvigorate their relationship when they discover a magical town in which everyone is living in a studio musical from the 1940s. They then discover that they can’t leave until they find “true love.”
Love leads to the strangest places.
Please tell me you’re excited as I am about this one. Please.
Schmigadoon! premieres July 16, only on Apple TV+.
