While we’re waiting for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp to debut on Netflix July 31, another summer camp movie is jumping in. 

Staten Island Summer, which was written by SNL‘s Colin Jost and produced by Lorne Michaels, is set to premiere on Netflix July 30, after rumors of the deal started circulating last month. Naturally, current and former SNL cast members like Fred Armisen, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Will Forte, and Bobby Moynihan star alongside Method Man and Gina Gershon. 

IMDb explains that the film is about two friends, Danny and Frank, who “spend the summer after high school working as lifeguards while figuring out their future.” The trailer looks a little more promising than the hackneyed concept art.
