Freeform Orders New Comedy Alone Together; You Me Her Returns Valentine's Day

Alone Together

Freeform continues to grow its roster of original series, by picking up scripted comedy Alone Together to series. Alone Together, is a half-hour, single-camera comedy starring Esther Povitsky (Lady Dynamite, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Benji Aflalo (Not Safe with Nikki Glaser). Esther and Benji are platonic best friends who want nothing more than to be accepted by the vain and status-obsessed culture. Despite their sometimes contentious relationship, when push comes to shove, they've got each other's back...and they have nobody else to hang out with. In addition to Povitsky and Aflalo, the pilot episode features guest stars Chris D'Elia (Undateable), Ginger Gonzaga (Wrecked), Edgar Blackmon (Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping), Hayley Marie Norman (Adam Ruins Everything), Kamilla Alnes (American Horror Story), Jim O'Heir (Parks and Recreation) and Justine Lupe (Younger). More info is to come on this series, with of a course premiere date to be announced. Stay tuned.


You Me Her

The second season of You Me Her, the original comedy series from AT&T* AUDIENCE(R) Network and Entertainment One (eOne), will premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT. The 10 half-hour episodes will air exclusively on AUDIENCE Network, which viewers can watch on DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse and the new streaming service DIRECTV NOW. Season 1's cast, featured Greg Poehler (Welcome to Sweden), Rachel Blanchard (Clueless, Fargo) and Priscilla Faia (Rookie Blue). They will return for season 2, along with Ennis Esmer (Blindspot, Miss Sloane) and Jennifer Spence (Travelers, Continuum) as neighbors Dave and Carmen. Melanie Papalia (Suits, Endgame) will also return to play Nina, Izzy's roommate.

Season 1 of You Me Her was a contemporary classic rom-com that just happened to involve 3 people, from meet cute straight through the iconic race to the airport. Now that grad student Izzy, (Faia) is moving in with suburban couple Jack and Emma, (Poehler and Blanchard), season 2 is about the complex realities of polyamory and "throupling." What happens when this peculiar rom-com fades to black? Can they prove their best, truest, happiest lives really are together, even when more conventional alternatives beckon? They stood up to the outside world but now they have to face something even more formidable: themselves. Taking the leap was just the beginning. Season 2 is about holding on when letting go seems so much easier.
