Togetherness

Hong Kong – Blending laughter and pathos, this new HBO Original comedy series follows four adults nearing 40, living under the same roof and struggling to keep their relationships and their dreams alive. Created by brothers Jay and Mark Duplass and Steve Zissis, Togetherness begins its eight-episode season Monday 12 January on HBO GO and on HBO less than a day of its U.S. premiere, followed by new half-hour episodes on subsequent Mondays. The series will also be released on HBO On Demand from Monday, 19 January.

Shot on location in and around the Eagle Rock neighbourhood of Los Angeles, Togetherness explores deeper issues related to friendship, careers and approaching middle age, celebrating the small, everyday moments of life that feel epic.

Series regulars include writer-director-producer Mark Duplass (The League, The Mindy Project) as Brett Pierson, a straitlaced sound designer trying to rediscover himself as he nears his 40s; Melanie Lynskey (Heavenly Creatures, Two and a Half Men) as Michelle Pierson, eager to rekindle her passion for romance and life; Amanda Peet (The Way, Way Back, The Good Wife) as Tina Morris, desperate to get her bouncy-castle business off the ground while looking for a husband; and Steve Zissis (Jeff, Who Lives at Home, Baghead) as struggling actor Alex Pappas, who nearly leaves town but is convinced by Brett to give his career one last try.
