Mumblecore master and Greta Gerwig-enabler Joe Swanberg is coming to Netflix with an eight-episode straight-to-order half-hour sitcom, Easy. According to THR, Easy is “an anthology that explores diverse Chicago characters as they fumble through the modern maze of love, sex, technology and culture,” likely similar to the web series-turned-IFC show, Young American Bodies. Swanberg will be writing, directing, and producing Easy, which will include appearances from the likes of Orlando Bloom, Malin Ackerman, Michael Chernus, Marc Maron, Elizabeth Reaser, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jake Johnson, Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Jane Adams, and Hannibal Burress. “Look at what a big budget gets you!,” he said in a low-budget voice.
