HBO has released the first Togetherness trailer for the upcoming comedy series from filmmaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass (Cyrus, Jeff Who Lives at Home). The show follows two couples living under the same roof, going through relationship difficulties as each individual pursues his or her own dream. This trailer is a strong introduction to the show, as it looks to be a relationship comedy with a bit of a cynical edge. Mark Duplass also stars in the show alongside Melanie Lynskey, Steve Zissis, and Amanda Peet.
