The Brat Pack is back in the spotlight. A new trailer for the documentary "Brats," directed by Andrew McCarthy, reveals a reunion of the iconic 1980s stars. The film explores the lives and careers of the actors branded as the Brat Pack after a 1985 New York magazine cover story.

"Brats," an ABC News Studios co-production, examines the cultural phenomenon of the Brat Pack films of the 1980s, including "St. Elmo’s Fire," "The Breakfast Club," and "Pretty in Pink." These films, known for capturing teenage angst and connecting with young audiences, left an indelible mark on a generation. 

In the documentary, McCarthy reunites with several Brat Pack members to address the question: What did it mean to be part of the Brat Pack?

Additionally, McCarthy speaks with key figures involved in the production of Brat Pack films, including directors, casting directors, screenwriters, and producers. He also engages in a first-time conversation with David Blum, the New York writer who coined the term Brat Pack.

"Brats" is set to premiere on Hulu on June 13.
