The brand new comedy Rutherford Falls will premiere this April on Stan

Co-created and executive produced by Michael Schur, Ed Helms and Sierra Teller Ornelas, Rutherford Falls stars Helms and Jana Schmieding as two lifelong best friends, Nathan Rutherford and Reagan Wells, who find themselves at a crossroads – quite literally – when their sleepy town gets an unexpected wakeup call.

The series also stars Michael Greyeyes (I Know This Much Is True), Jesse Leigh (Heathers) and Dustin Milligan (Schitt’s Creek).

Rutherford Falls marks the next major Peacock exclusive to premiere only on Stan, as part of its landmark partnership with NBCUniversal.

The series represents a breakthrough moment in Native representation in comedy television, both in front of and behind the camera. Jana Schmieding (Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux) and Michael Greyeyes (Nêhiyaw from Muskeg Lake Cree Nation) star in the series. 

There are five Native writers staffed on Rutherford Falls, one of the largest Indigenous writer’s rooms on television. These writers include co-creator and executive producer Sierra Teller Ornelas (Navajo), Bobby Wilson (Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota), Tai Leclaire (Kanien’kehá:ka [Mohawk Nation]/Mi’kmaq), Jana Schmieding (Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux), and Tazbah Chavez (Nüümü [Bishop Paiute Tribe], Diné [Navajo], San Carlos Apache).

Mike Falbo, David Miner and Morgan Sackett serve as executive producers on the series. Rutherford Falls is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Fremulon, 3 Arts Entertainment and Pacific Electric Picture Company.

Rutherford Falls premieres Friday, 23 April only on Stan.
