HBO has given a series order to a half-hour comedy from Jay and Mark Duplass. Togetherness stars Amanda Peet as the extroverted Tina, who moves in with her sister (Melanie Lynskey), her sister's husband (Mark Duplass), and the husband's washed-up best friend (frequent Duplass collaborator Steve Zissis). At last, a TV role that might actually work out for Amanda Peet! The show goes into production early next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and it won't affect the world's busiest actor, writer, and producer's role on The League, thank goodness.
