HBO greenlit the Duplass brothers' single-camera comedy pilot back in January, and now the network has given it an official series order. Togetherness will star Mark Duplass, Amanda Peet, Melanie Lynskey, and Steve Zissis (who has appeared in many other Duplass productions). Jay and Mark Duplass will write, direct, and executive produce the eight episodes.
Togetherness revolves around two couples living together “who struggle to keep their relationships alive while pursuing their individual dreams.” Mark Duplass and Lynskey will portray a seemingly ideal married couple, whose real lives are far more problematic than they seem. Peet will play Lynskey’s sister, while Zissis turns up as a homeless actor. Production is scheduled to begin early next year.
