First episode of Togetherness

One of the new offerings on HBO is a show called Togetherness, which is written and directed by Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass. The first episode of Togetherness introduce four troubled adults, and watches as they all begin to slide toward 40 and/or oblivion together. Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey play a married couple who have been together for a decade; Steve Zissis is his best friend and Amanda Peet is her sister. The four end up living under the same roof, and their proximity to one another makes their individual and collective shortcomings impossible to ignore.

The series premiered last night, but HBO has made the first episode available in full online. Along with that, you can check out a video of the Duplass brothers playing their own rendition of the old HBO theme song. Read More »

Brothers Jay and Mark Duplass have been apart more than not lately, with Jay killing it on Amazon’s Transparent and Mark doing the same on FXX’s The League. But come January, they’ll be re-teaming for a brand-new show on HBO called Togetherness.

The half-hour series centers around four people in their late 30s who all live under one roof. Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey play Brett and Michelle, a married couple struggling with parenthood, Steve Zissis is Brett’s underemployed best friend Alex, and Amanda Peet is Michelle’s free-spirited sister Tina.
