Girls, Veep, Family Tree, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Eastbound & Down—that is a solid, eclectic comedy roster on HBO.  Still, with Eastbound & Down and down entering its final season and Curb Your Enthusiasm waiting on Larry David‘s desire to a ninth season, HBO is looking to bring more comedies to the network.  They ordered Mike Judge‘s Silicon Valley; a dramedy about a group of San Francisco gay men starring Jonathan Groff; Stephen Merchant‘s Hello Ladies, and British import Getting On to series.

Togetherness is the latest to receive a series order from HBO.  The half-hour comedy developed by the Duplass Brothers follows two couples living under the same roof going through relationship difficulties as each individual pursues their own dreams.  Mark Duplass, Melanie LynskeyAmanda Peet, and Steve Zissis star.

In a move that surprises no one, HBO has renewed its highly discussed, popular and divisive series Girls for a third season with an expanded episode count, totaling twelve.  The series was already brought back early this year (returning in January after premiering last spring in April with the sharp political comedy Veep), and HBO seems eager to ride the zeitgeist wave and bring even more of the series as fast as it can.

Elsewhere, the premium cable channel has ordered a half-hour pilot from Jay and Mark Duplass who are set to write, direct and produce (though not star or appear in) the series called Togetherness.  Togetherness will focus on two couples living under one roof, working through their relationships and pursuing their dreams.  Hit the jump for more.
