Watch the official trailer for the Netflix Original series Real Rob starring Rob Schneider.
The next Netflix Original series is coming to Netflix on Dec. 1 with the release of Real Rob, starring former Saturday Night Live and sidekick in Adam Sandler movies, Rob Schneider.
Schneider plays a fictionalized version of himself in the eight-episode first season scheduled to drop on the first of December and the show is so true to form that Schneider’s real life wife and TV producer Patricia Schneider, stars as his wife in the Netflix series.
Not only does the couple star in the show together but they also wrote the show together, along with co-star Jamie Lissow in what he told EW was a labor of love.
“My wife and I can’t write together,” Schneider tells EW. “She has a particular way of looking at things, as do I. We butt heads over things. When there’s a third person there, it kind of neutralizes that.”
“Ultimately, I think she did the show for me, and I did it for her,”
Real Rob - Official Trailer - Netflix
While some couples go to the movies or chill on the couch and watch Netflix, Rob and Patricia decided their best couples activity would be creating a show for other couples to watch on Netflix instead.
Rob says he borrowed from his real life experiences to help him with the writing of the show. He adds he can be a jerk in real life, but not to the extent that his character can be in the series. But he says the viewer likes watching those characters more instead of some boring character puffing himself up.
“Somebody trying to show themselves in a really great light is boring,” he says. “I think the characters that have problems are the ones that are much more interesting. That’s what I want to watch.”
You can watch the Real Rob trailer in the clip above that features cameos from Norm MacDonald, David Spade and George Lopez. If it looks interesting to you, then start counting down the days until Real Rob is available on Dec. 1.
