Andy Samberg Says Brooklyn Nine-Nine Writers Are 'Rethinking' Show amid Anti-Police Protests
How I Met Your Mother star Cristin Milioti plays Samberg's "partner-in-time" as the pair navigate their way through a never-ending first date. For Milioti, it was a joy to act alongside the SNL alumnus.
"I didn't know Andy before this. I knew of Andy, obviously, and I love everything he does," she gushes to PEOPLE. "I just really lucked out. We have a really easy rapport, a similar sense of humor and like the same things and he's a delight to be around, as well as to work with."
Samberg previously told PEOPLE he jumped at the chance to take a new twist on the romantic comedy genre.
"I think rom-coms can have that same comfort food energy for people, especially when they want to just be whisked away in something cozy and whimsical," he said. "And I think we sort of split the difference on Palm Springs between that and something else. But I definitely see the appeal and we definitely wanted it to feel that for people who do love rom-coms."
The film, which Samberg also produced, made history earlier this year as the biggest sale in Sundance Film Festival history, going to Neon and Hulu in a deal reportedly worth $22 million, according to IndieWire.
Palm Springs also stars J.K. Simmons, Peter Gallagher, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes, Tyler Hoechlin and June Squibb, and will be available to stream on Hulu starting July 10.
