Last month we got a brief teaser of the new HBO comedy Togetherness, and today HBO has released the first full length trailer for the upcoming series from the filmmaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass (Baghead, Jeff Who Lives at Home). The series follows two couples living under the same roof as they try to pursue their individual dreams while coping with the difficulties in their relationships. The trailer looks promising, displaying the Duplass Brothers’ knack for delivering emotional honesty without getting too heavy. The show also has an excellent cast going for it with Mark Duplass starring alongside Amanda Peet, Melanie Lynskey, and Steve Zissis.
Watch the full length Togetherness trailer after the jump. The eight-episode first season premieres January 11th on HBO after Girls.
