New HBO comedy Togetherness begins on Tuesday on Showcase, a somewhat quirky take on coupling in Los Angeles.
This comes from the Duplass brothers, Mark Duplass has a lead role, and Steve Zissis who co-stars. Like Girls this is a half hour single comedy, that looks at modern relationships without forcing the humour.
Possibly an acquired taste but if you’re looking for something a bit offbeat it might be one for you.
Togetherness is a new “couples” comedy from HBO set in Los Angeles. Created by the Duplass Brothers, the series follows Brett and Michelle (Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey) who are struggling to rekindle the spark in their relationship, which has puttered out from the stresses of marriage and children. When Brett’s friend Alex (Steve Zissis) and Michelle’s sister Tina (Amanda Peet) move in with them, the foursome engage in a tragically comedic struggle to follow their personal dreams while still remaining good friends, siblings, and spouses to each other.
7:30pm Tuesday on Showcase.
