Jesse Eisenberg, Claire Danes, Lizzy Caplan starring in the new series ‘Fleishman Is in Trouble’ released a new trailer, a maddeningly dramatic life. The series will be on Hulu on November 17th.
The latest look at the network’s new limited series teases complex relationships, the highs and lows of parenting, and stressful working environments.
‘Fleishman Is in Trouble’ is from the best-selling novel of the same name by Taffy Brodesser-Akner, who also wrote the screenplay.
In it, we hear the voice of Lizzie Caplan who will appear in the series as its narrator and in the role of Libby Epstein, the titular Toby Fleishman’s (Eisenberg) best friend with whom he’s just reconnecting.
The scene is set as the audience learns that Toby’s ex-wife Rachel (Claire Danes) dropped their kids off and then disappeared.
As Libby voices concern, Toby seems less than pleased that he’s effectively now the single father of two children (Meara Mahoney Gross, Maxim Swinton).
Libby then walks us through what the series will be about – friendships, romance, and the like – and we catch a glimpse of all the main players, portrayed by Adam Brody, Christian Slater, Josh Radnor, Joy Suprano, Ralph Adriel Johnson, Brian Miskell, Michael Gaston, and Juani Feliz.
At the end, Caplan’s Libby poses the question of can we really understand the full story if we don’t hear both sides?
As the teaser reveals, Taffy Brodresser-Akner’s best-selling novel-turned-series, Fleishman Is In Trouble centers around Toby as he battles with the fall out of a separation with his now ex, Rachel.
A successful doctor living in New York City, Toby soon finds that the world of dating is an entirely new experience than it was when he was last single.
Beginning to get his bearings swiping left and right on a sea of faces, his fun is about to come to a screeching halt when he’s left to watch over his kids after his wife disappears.
Little Miss Sunshine directorial duo, Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton will stand at the helm of several episodes of FX’s latest comedy drama. They’ll also executive produce alongside Brodresser-Akner, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, and Susannah Grant.
