Wet Hot American Summer always seemed like an odd property for Netflix to revive as a TV series. The original film starred a who's who of comedic talent like Amy Poehler, Janeane Garofalo and Paul Rudd as employees at a particularly demented summer camp. It wasn't a big hit at the time, but over the years it gained a pretty vocal cult following (if you've seen it, you know why). But now that we've got our first detailed look at the series in a new trailer, it makes complete sense for Netflix. The Wet Hot American Summer show looks just as weird and funny as the original, and it also packs in a ton of star power. Netflix managed to get the entire original cast back together, along with some new faces. That includes Bradley Cooper, who was nowhere near a superstar back in 2001, and Jon Hamm, solidifying himself as a comedic ninja.
