Netflix knows a good thing when they see it and that good thing continues to be the teen-icon Noah Centineo (TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE). The streamer announced another partnership with the former Freeform mainstay, a starring role in THE PERFECT DATE, Netflix’s newest brightly-colored rom-com.
In anticipation of the April 12th premiere, Netflix released a new trailer to whet viewers’ appetites.
Brooks Rattigan (Noah Centineo) has the academic chops to get into his dream Ivy League school, but what he’s missing is an outstanding extracurricular — and the money. When he seizes on an opportunity to make some extra cash by posing as the boyfriend of a self-assured, combat boot-loving girl named Celia Lieberman (Laura Marano), he finds he has a knack for being the perfect stand-in. Together with his programmer friend Murph (Odiseas Georgiadis), Brooks launches an app selling himself as a plus-one for all occasions. Along the way, he meets the girl of his dreams (Camila Mendes). But when business starts to boom, Brooks must reassess everything he was once sure of.
