Togetherness is an American comedy-drama television series created by Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass and Steve Zissis which follows a couple with two kids who find their sputtering marriage becoming more complicated when they welcome new housemates.
Written, directed and executive produced by Jay and Mark Duplass, Togetherness is a comedic look at four middle-aged people reconciling their dreams with their current personal and professional lives in Los Angeles.
Brett (Mark Duplass) and Michelle (Melanie Lynskey) are a married couple in their mid-late 30s struggling to adapt their relationship to the pressures of parenthood.
Brett's best friend is Alex (Steve Zissis), an overweight, out-of-work actor debating if he still has a shot at being successful.
Alex connects with Michelle's sister, Tina (Amanda Peet), a free spirit grappling with being single and getting older.
Each adult fights to sustain his or her own passion without skirting responsibility. As the two couples find themselves living under one roof, Togetherness explores the significance behind every day moments.
Shot on location in and around the Eagle Rock neighbourhood of Los Angeles, Togetherness explores deeper issues related to friendship, careers and approaching middle age, celebrating the small, everyday moments of life that feel epic.
Series regulars include writer-director-producer Mark Duplass (The League, The Mindy Project) as Brett Pierson, a straitlaced sound designer trying to rediscover himself as he nears his 40s; Melanie Lynskey (Heavenly Creatures, Two and a Half Men) as Michelle Pierson, eager to rekindle her passion for romance and life; Amanda Peet (The Way, Way Back, The Good Wife) as Tina Morris, desperate to get her bouncy-castle business off the ground while looking for a husband; and Steve Zissis (Jeff, Who Lives at Home, Baghead) as struggling actor Alex Pappas, who nearly leaves town but is convinced by Brett to give his career one last try.
Guest stars include Peter Gallagher (The O.C.) as Larry, a movie producer; John Ortiz (Luck) as David, a divorced dad campaigning for a charter school; and Mary Steenburgen (Joan of Arcadia) as Linda, a free spirit who takes an interest in helping Brett come out of his shell.
