Jay and Mark Duplass are headed to HBO. The premium cable channel has order a pilot from the filmmaking brothers, for a half-hour comedy called “Togetherness” about two couples living under the same roof.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Duplasses will write, executive produce and direct the pilot, with Stephanie Langhoff from their Duplass Brothers Productions company as co-executive producer. Neither brother is set to appear on screen.
