On Friday, February 19, Netflix will debut all 10 half-hour episodes of the all-new Judd Apatow comedy series, Love. Netflix has release a teaser trailer and a first look image, which we've included below. Created, written and executive produced by Judd Apatow, Paul Rust and Lesley Arfin, Love follows nice guy Gus (Paul Rust) and brazen wild-child Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, love and other things they were hoping to avoid. Love is an unflinching, hilarious and excruciatingly honest take on modern relationships.
Along with the official photo and teaser, EW has also released their own exclusive photo featuring Love's two leading characters. These two individuals are stuck on the polar ends of the same amorous magnet. Gus is described as a people pleaser who may be too much of a nice guy. Following a break-up, he moves into a trendy new apartment complex mostly occupied by college kids. He experiences a chance encounter that brings him in contact with Wild Child Mickey.
Mickey hates her satellite radio job, and just recently ended her own long-term relationship. Together, these mismatched misfits open each other up to the possibilities of a different life, and a different kind of life style. Love is the first TV show from Judd Apatow since 2001's college comedy Undeclared. And it's Gillian Jacobs' first regular series after leaving Community.
Love has already been picked up by Netflix for two seasons. The show was originally announced in September 2014. The half-hour comedy series will be arriving alongside two other high profile Netflix series in early 2016. The streaming giant also has Chelsea Handler's Chelsea Does premiering a few weeks beforehand on January 23. And the long anticipated revival series Fuller House drops the following weekend. Love Season 2 arrives in Winter 2017.
Love isn't the only Netflix project bringing Judd Apatow and Paul Rust together. The duo worked together on Pee-wee's Big Holiday. Paul Rust co-wrote the screenplay with Pee-wee himself, Paul Reubens. And Judd Apatow is producing. The new comedy movie will debut on Netflix this March. While we await that trailer, get your first look at Judd Apatow's Love.
