?The D Train? tells the story of an enthusiastic high school reunion head committee named Dan Landsman (Black) who wants to get rid of the loser tag. He vows to bring the most famous former classmate Oliver Lawless (Marsden), a struggling actor who stars in commercials, to attend the reunion. Black then sneaks into Hollywood, risking relationships with his wife and colleagues as he tries to complete the mission.

In addition to Black and Marsden, the comedy stars Kathryn Hahn, Kyle Bornheimer, Mike White, Jeffrey Tambor and Denise Williamson among others. It is produced by David Bernad, White, Black, Priyanka Mattoo, Ben Latham-Jones and Barnaby Thompson.
