Showtime Drops New Trailers for ‘Couples Therapy’ Docuseries, Comedy ‘Back to Life’ (Video)

TCA 2019: Lilly Wachowski’s “Work in Progress” gets December premiere date

Showtime released new trailers for a pair of its upcoming shows on Friday, the documentary series “Couples Therapy,” which follows real-life couples into their counseling sessions, and the scripted comedy series “Back to Life” from “Fleabag” producers Harry and Jack Williams and Daisy Haggard.

“Couples Therapy,” from “Weiner” filmmakers Josh Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg, and Eli Despres, follows four couples in their weekly therapy sessions with Dr. Orna Guralnik, a world-class therapist who guides the couples through the “real-life struggles — and extraordinary breakthroughs — typically hidden behind closed doors.”

The nine-episode series is set to debut on Friday, Sept. 6. Watch the trailer above.

Created by and starring Daisy Haggard, “Back to Life” centers on Miri Matteson, who, after 18 years behind bars, returns home and stumbles back into adult life in the coastal town she once knew, while the mystery of her past looms large.

The cast also includes Geraldine James, Richard Durden, Jo Martin, Jamie Michie, Christine Bottomley, Adeel Akhtar and Liam Williams. It will debut on Showtime on Sunday, Oct. 6.

Showtime has also announced a Sunday, Dec. 8 premiere date for the half-hour comedy “Work in Progress” from creators Abby McEnany and Tim Mason, and co-writer by Lilly Wachowski.

Described as “a funny and uniquely human comedy,” the series stars McEnany as a 45-year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke from Chicago whose misfortune and despair unexpectedly lead her to a vibrantly transformative relationship. Karin Anglin and Celeste Pechous also star, with Julia Sweeney appearing in a “crucial” role as herself.
