TCA 2016: New Netflix comedy takes shot at “confusing” third season of Showtime’s “Homeland”
The first trailer for Judd Apatow‘s new Netflix comedy “Love” runs the full gamut of emotions.
The two-minute, 18-second preview takes viewers from the initial meeting between Paul Rust’s Gus and Gillian Jacobs‘ Mickey, and into the beginning stages of their apparently budding relationship. Uncomfortable as that courtship may be, it sure seems like their future together could be better than the characters’ individual pasts. After all, in the above clip, Gus calls his ex a “bitch” and Mickey’s ex calls her a “whore.”
Later, Rust’s character laments, “Nobody ever just pulls you aside and goes, ‘Hey, just so you know, relationships are fucking bullshit,'” taking his pent-up anger out on some romantic comedy Blu-ray discs.
He and Mickey then agree that Season 3 of “Homeland” was too “confusing,” and that one gets tossed out the window too.
Created, written and executive produced by Apatow, Rust and Lesley Arfin, “Love” follows nice guy Gus and brazen wild-child Mickey as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, love and other things they were hoping to avoid.
“Love,” which will drop on Netflix in its entirety on Feb. 19, is an unflinching, hilarious and excruciatingly honest take on modern relationships, per the streaming service.
Brent Forrester and Dean Holland also serve as executive producers of “Love.”
