Judd Apatow’s New Show Goes Straight-to-Series on Netflix


Fans of funny things rejoice! Judd Apatow is creating his first TV show in over a decade. Deadline reports that the comedy writer/director has received a 2-season order for a new series on Netflix.

The new series, titled Love, is a relationship comedy that stars Community’s Gillian Jacobs and I Love You Beth Cooper star Paul Rust. The new show “follows Gus (Rust) and Mickey (Jacobs) as they navigate the exhilaration and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid”. The plot description sounds a tad generic, but it’s only a single sentence and Apatow’s sensibilities have created some amazing work in the past.

Judd Apatow previously worked in TV as a writer of The Ben Stiller Show, The Larry Sanders Show, and Freaks and Geeks and created the short-lived sitcom Undeclared in 2001. In recent years he has served as executive producer on Funny or Die Presents and HBO’s Girls.
