The cast of one of the best short-lived comedy series on TV has staged a reunion twelve years after their show was cancelled.

The entire cast of the 1999 comedy series Freaks and Geeks has reunited to discuss their experience on the short-lived series, which ran for one brilliant season before it was given the axe.

The Judd Apatow-created series was heralded as being ahead of its time but faced strong opposition from its network, NBC, who eventually cut it.

Freaks and Geeks launched the careers of Seth Rogan, James Franco, Linda Cardellini, Busy Philipps and Jason Segel and the first season included bit parts from the likes of Shia LaBeouf, Rashida Jones, Lizzy Caplan, Jason Schwartzman and Ben Foster. Continue reading »
