Netflix Sets Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Fakes' Starring Emilija Baranac, Richard Harmon and Jennifer Tong

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original comedy series Fakes starring Emilija Baranac, Richard Harmon and Jennifer Tong.

All 10 episodes of the first season will be available on Friday, September 2.

Two best friends accidentally build one of the largest fake ID empires in North America. They move into a downtown penthouse, have more cash than they know what to do with, and then get raided by the feds. One of them goes to jail, the other doesn't. This is the story of their ultimate betrayal, told through each of their POVs with regular fourth wall breaks. This is a comedy drama with two unreliable narrators who are both competing for the last word.

David Turko created the comedy. He executive produces with Simon Barry, Stephen Hegyes, Lilly Burns, Tony Hernandez and Tabia Lau.
