Judd Apatow has been off the self-created television show radar since the end of Undeclared in 2003, busying himself with the direction of comedy classic films such as The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, This Is 40 and newly released Trainwreck.
But he’s back to his old tricks it seems – with the creation of new series Love, made for streaming giant Netflix. Apatow has teamed up with Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Leslie Arfin and comedian/writer/actor Paul Rust for his latest project. In anticipation for the show, Netflix has released a non-footage trailer, which you can see below.
Love will centre around nerdy guy Gus (Rust), who falls for wild child Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) in Los Angeles. The show will follow the pair in their journey discovering how to love each other and navigate commitment and intimacy, and Mickey’s reluctance.
The show will debut via Netflix on February 19 – with the entire 10-episode series launching at once.
