Kroll, Goldberg and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett are the creators and executive producers of the Netflix production.

"There are few things that keep me up at night.... Nick Kroll's adventures in puberty is one of them, so we greenlit this series with very few questions asked," Cindy Holland, Netflix's vice president of original content, said in a statement Monday.

"Andrew and I have been best friends since first grade, so this show is over 30 years in the making. I can't wait to tell all the stories that make up the glorious nightmare of puberty," added Kroll.
