WHAT’S BETTER than a show starring Paul Rudd? A show starring two Paul Rudds and Aisling Bea.
After what seems to fans like years of waiting, the premier of Aisling Bea and Paul Rudd’s new Netflix show Living With Yourself is just over a month away.
Written by Tim Greenburg of The Daily Show and directed by Little Miss Sunshine’s Valerie Faris and John Dayton, the show is already off to a good start even without the addition of the two brilliant actors.
The eight-episode-long show follows Miles Elliot (Paul Rudd), a miserable man who goes to a spa that promises to make him a better person-- only to discover upon his return home that he has literally been replaced with a new, better version of himself.
The trailer dropped yesterday evening and it looks like fans aren’t going to be disappointed: the show promises some bizarre situations, and with such a unique premise, it’s anyone’s guess what will happen during the show’s run.
Here’s hoping the show uses Bea to her full potential, because as anyone who has watched her Sitcom This Way Up knows, she is a top class actress with a huge range of abilities. But as the story will be told through "multiple perspectives and intersecting storylines" there's a fair chance Bea will get to prove herself to American audiences who may not yet have heard of the comedian.
Living With Yourself will premiere on Netflix next month, October 18th.
