Netflix teams up with Judd Apatow for ‘Love’
MUMBAI: Film director Judd Apatow, Paul Rust and Lesley Arfin are bringing a take on modern relationships to ‘Love’, a new Netflix original series, licensed globally and debuting in 2016 in all Netflix territories.
Netflix has made a two-season commitment to ‘Love’, which debuts with 10 episodes in 2016 and 12 the following year.
‘Love’ follows Gus and Mickey as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid.
The half-hour comedy series is produced by Apatow Productions and Legendary Television, and created and written by Apatow, Rust and Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Girls). Brent Forrester (The Office, The Simpsons) will executive produce.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said, “Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank — often at the same time,” said. “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”
Apatow said, “I am so excited to get to work with Paul and Lesley on this project. Netflix has been supportive in ways I couldn’t create in my wildest fever dreams.”
Legendary Television president of television and digital media Bruce Rosenblum said, “We at Legendary are thrilled to be working with the wonderfully talented Judd and excited to partner with the Netflix team. We look forward to validating their support for this innovative and genuinely funny series.”
