Watch This! Judd Apatow’s ‘Love’ debuts on Netflix in February

Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust in 'Love,' a Netflix Original Series co-created by Judd Apatow

After developing and producing the critically acclaimed but quickly cancelled shows Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, Judd Apatow turned to the movies, where he directed a few and produced even more hit R-rated comedies.

Now he’s created his first original series in over a decade: Love, a romantic comedy starring Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust (who also co-created the show, along with Lesley Arfin) as singles just out of dysfunctional relationships. She’s a trainwreck, he’s a sad sack, and they meet after respective bad break-ups. They’re a two-person support group convinced off the impossibility of true love.

It debuts on Netflix on Friday, February 19, right after Valentine’s Day.

Here’s the first trailer for the show.

Sean Axmaker is a Seattle film critic and writer. He writes the weekly newspaper column Stream On Demand and the companion website, and his work appears at, Turner Classic Movies online, The Film Noir Foundation, and Parallax View.
