For his latest project, prolific indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg is moving to Netflix. “Easy,” a comedic anthology series written, directed and produced by Swanberg, is set in Chicago and revolves around a diverse cast of characters making their way through the vagaries of modern life. Watch its animated teaser below.
The first season will consist of eight half-hour episodes “about sexual evolution,” with a huge amount of actors appearing: Orlando Bloom, Malin Åkerman, Michael Chernus, Marc Maron, Kiersey Clemons, Elizabeth Reaser, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jake Johnson, Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Jane Adams, Hannibal Buress and Emily Ratajkowski, among others. Unlike this teaser, “Easy” itself isn’t a cartoon.
Swanberg’s first foray into television, an episode of “Love,” was also for Netflix; his recent films include “Digging for Fire,” “Happy Christmas” and “Drinking Buddies.” The streaming platform will make all eight episodes of “Easy” available on September 23.
