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.
