Amazon has unveiled its first trailer for new comedy series Forever.
The show, which is created by Parks and Recreation’s Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard, stars Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen as married couple June and Oscar. The pair live a comfortable but predictable life in suburban Riverside, California. For 12 years, they’ve had the same conversations, eaten the same meals and taken pleasant holidays at the same rented lake house. But after June talks Oscar into shaking things up with a ski trip, they find themselves in completely unfamiliar territory.
Forever is described by Amazon as “an utterly original, insightful and poignant comedy about love, commitment and marriage” – and now, we have our first look at what that entails. The series co-stars Catherine Keener, Noah Robbins and Kym Whitley, with Tim Sarkes and Dave Becky serving as exec producers alongside Yang, Hubbard, Rudolph and Armisen.
The series premieres on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 14th September. Here’s a trailer:
Forever is available to watch online on Amazon Prime Video as part of a £5.99 monthly subscription.
Catherine Keener has signed on to star in Maya Rudolph’s Amazon comedy series.
The project was announced earlier this year, a part of a wave of new commissions from Amazon Studios. The comedy is co-exec-produced by Rudolph and fellow Saturday Night Live veteran Fred Armisen and is written and created by Alan Yang (co-creator of Master of None) and Matt Hubbard. Dave Becky and Tim Sarkes will also exec-produce, alongside Yang and Hubbard.
Not much is known about the untitled show, although Deadline reports that Armisen and Rudolph will play a married couple in Southern California. Now, they’ve got an Oscar nominee on their doorstep, with Keener expected to play a mysterious new neighbour who moves in next door. The casting arrives hot on the heels of Keener’s role in the hugely acclaimed Get Out and ahead of her next starring role in the upcoming Sicario sequel, Soldado.
The single-camera comedy was given a straight-to-series order by Amazon Studios and will likely premiere next year. For more on what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video, click here.
