Check out the First Look at HBO’s ‘Togetherness’ From The Duplass Brothers!

I love the Duplass Brothers and the films they’ve made going all the way back to The Puffy Chair. They started out rough and have only grown with each successive film they’ve released. They specialize in complicated, troubled, three dimensional characters that are unique, but always relatable. It looks like they’re staying true to that voice with HBO’s Togetherness and I couldn’t be happier.

Togetherness stars Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey as a married couple struggling to keep the passion in there marriage while dealing with parenthood. Steve Zissis plays Duplass’ mess of a best friend and Amanda Peet plays Lynskey’s free-spirited sister Tina.

The half-hour series will consist of eight first season episodes that will air with Girls on Sunday nights beginning on January 11th 2015. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to see more.

Official Press Release:

Written, directed and executive produced by Jay and Mark Duplass (‘Jeff, Who Lives at Home’, ‘Cyrus’), ‘Togetherness’ is a comedic look at four middle-aged people reconciling their dreams with their current personal and professional lives in Los Angeles.

Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey) are a married couple in their mid-late 30s struggling to adapt their relationship to the pressures of parenthood. Brett’s best friend is Alex (Steve Zissis), an overweight, out-of-work actor debating if he still has a shot at being successful. Alex connects with Michelle’s sister, Tina (Amanda Peet), a free spirit grappling with being single and getting older. Each adult fights to sustain his or her own passion without skirting responsibility. As the two couples find themselves living under one roof, ‘Togetherness’ explores the significance behind every day moments.

The eight-episode first season will premiere in 2015.
