Adam Sandler and Chris Rock are joining forces for a new Netflix original comedy, dubbed The Week Of. Directed by frequent Happy Madison collaborator Robert Smigel, the film is scheduled to begin shooting this summer in Long Island.

The Week Of centers around the week-long preparation leading up to the marriage between Sandler's character's daughter and Rock's character's son. Sandler co-wrote the comedy alongside Smigel, while Barry Bernardi and Tim Herlihy act as executive producers, and Sandler and Allen Covert will produce for Happy Madison.

“Adam Sandler and Chris Rock are cornerstones of the Netflix comedy family, and we are over the moon about these two legends reuniting to give our members worldwide a healthy dose of the hilarity that they have been creating together for years,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said when speaking with Deadline. “Similar in the romantic comedy tone of Sandler’s most recent film Sandy Wexler, this film will be the perfect vehicle for Sandler and Rock and their millions of fans around the world.”

The picture ultimately serves as Sandler's fourth and final original feature in a deal between he and Netflix. According to the streaming service, all three previous releases are among their biggest ever, the most recent being Sandy Wexler.

Netflix also inked a deal with Rock for two new comedy specials.
