Hot on the heels of the box office success of Love, Simon—and just in time for Pride—Netflix is releasing its own gay-teen romantic comedy this summer.
Alex Strangelove will follow high school senior Alex Truelove, a well-rounded senior who is starting to explore the idea of losing his virginity.
“Things get complicated when he meets a handsome and charming gay kid from the other side of town who unwittingly sends him on a roller-coaster journey of sexual identity,” an official synopsis reads.
Alex Truelove will be played by Daniel Doheny, who has previously had roles in Supernatural and HumanTown.
The film has been produced by Ben Stiller and directed by Craig Johnson, who describes the film as “a fun, funny, and flirty film located down the street from Pretty in Pink, around the corner from Superbad, and right next door to new neighbor Love, Simon.”
Madeline Weinstein, Antonio Marziale, Joanna Adler, Isabella Amara, and William Ragsdale also star in the teen movie.
Alex Strangelove will start streaming on Netflix on June 8.
