Before Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) return for season two of Love, Netflix decided to share the good news: they’ve already renewed the Judd Apatow-produced series for a third season. We’re already guaranteed more time with these charming but flawed characters.
But before we see the current state of their relationship, another show — an entirely different show — premieres on FX. That series is called Feud: Bette and Joan, which you can watch a new trailer for.
Below, watch a full Love season two preview and the Feud: Bette and Joan trailer.

If, like me, you’ve lately been wondering when we’re going to see season two of Netflix’s Love, then you’ll likely be happy to learn the series returns on March 10th. Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs are back as Gus and Mickey. In season two of the delightfully honest romantic comedy series, which Rust co-created with Judd Apatow and Lesley Arfin, the couple face commitment.
Below, watch the Love season 2 teaser.

For any comedy writer of a certain age, working on a new Pee-wee Herman movie is a dream come true. And you can clearly see just how giddy Paul Rust is to have written Pee-wee’s Big Holiday alongside Paul Reubens. Rust, an actor and writer whose credits include everything from Arrested Development and Comedy Bang! Bang!, didn’t even try to mask his enthusiasm when I sat down with him the day after the film’s world premiere at SXSW. He was a kid in a candy shop.
During the course of our interview, we discussed old school Pee-wee fandom, his new Netflix series Love, and how writing a Pee-wee adventure is so very different than writing for most comedies.

Now that we’ve met Mickey and Gus, the first full-length Love trailer has arrived to show us what they’re like together. The upcoming Netflix series from Judd Apatow, Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!) centers on two very different young adults trying, with very mixed results, to navigate the complexities of modern love. Rust himself plays nice guy Gus, and Gillian Jacobs is wild-child Mickey. Watch the new Love trailer after the jump. Read More »
Netflix must be happy with its upcoming series Love, because they’ve already given the show a two-season order.

Before films like The 40-Year-Old Virgin made him the new king of big-screen comedy, Judd Apatow was best known for small-screen cult faves like Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. He took a step back into TV a couple of years ago with Lena Dunham’s Girls, and now he’s taking another with Love.
The new comedy already has a two-season commitment from Netflix, and some great pedigree on its side. Apatow created the show with Girls writer Lesley Arfin, and Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust are set to play the leads. Hit the jump for all the details on the Netflix Judd Apatow show.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
“If you’re a writer tonight, you might want to hide your knives,” said Jason Reitman at Tuesday night’s special summer live read. “This script is so good you’ll never want to write again. You f***er, Vince.”
The script Reitman was referring to, the script that could get the writer/director to come back and do a live read in July when he’s not scheduled to come back until October, was the pilot of AMC’s Breaking Bad. The “Vince” is creator Vince Gilligan. And as fantastic the first episode of Breaking Bad is to watch, to hear it read reveals another level of brilliance. If you were to travel back in time, sit down with Gilligan in 2007 and ask him to describe what happens in the show over a few beers, that’s what his writing sounds like. It’s perfectly, brilliantly descriptive with a language that’s filled with vulgarity and humor. It has a conversational, culturally current tone that pops off the page.
The latest live read at the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art, presented by Film Independent, revealed not only this fantastic writing, but some fun interpretations by great actors, appearances by the original actors, deleted scenes and more. Read about it below. Read More »
In a piece of fan casting worthy of years and years of Ghostbusters 3 speculation, director Jason Reitman has revealed that for his next live reading, Ghostbusters, he’s cast Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Rainn Wilson as Venkman, Stanz and Spengler respectively. The event, part of an ongoing series presented by Film Independent at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, takes places Thursday December 12. It’s sold out.
Of course, Jason Reitman’s father, Ivan Reitman, directed the hit 1984 film and revealed to his son that much of the famous dialogue was improvised by Bill Murray. So this isn’t just a script reading, it’s a combination of the original shooting script with Murray’s iconic one-liners. Read the rest of the cast, and how you can possibly see this once-in-a-lifetime event, after the jump. Read More »
