Netflix announced today the new romantic comedy series Too Much, created by Lena Dunham and her husband, Luis Felber.
Too Much follows Jessica Salmon (Megan Stalter, Hacks, Please Don’t Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain), a thirty-something workaholic in New York City who’s reeling from a broken relationship that she thought would last forever, and slowly isolating from everyone she knows.
When every block in the Big Apple tells a story of her bad behavior, the only solution is for Jessica to take a job in London, where she plans to live a life of solitude like a Brontë sister. But when she meets Felix (Will Sharpe, The White Lotus, Giri/Haji) — who is less Hugh Grant in Notting Hill and more Hugh Grant’s drunken roommate — she finds that their unusual connection is impossible to ignore, even as it creates more problems than it solves. Now they have to ask themselves: Do Americans and Brits actually speak the same language?
Said co-creator, writer ,and director Lena Dunham:
“This is a show that is very close to my heart – created with my husband Luis, cast with my favourite actors – the geniuses that are Meg and Will, along with a bevy of friends – and partnering again with Working Title, who are behind the romantic comedies that formed me. Netflix has been so deeply supportive of the vision, which is to create a romantic comedy that makes us root for love, brings joy but also has the jagged edges of life.”
A project of Working Title Television, part of Universal International Studios, and Lena Dunham’s Good Thing Going production company, Too Much is created by Lena Dunham (Girls, Catherine Called Birdy) and Luis Felber (Catherine Called Birdy, Vinyl), the latter of whom will provide original music for the series. The 10-episode 30-minute comedy series is written, directed, and executive produced by Lena Dunham. Also executive producing are Luis Felber, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Michael P. Cohen, Surian Fletcher-Jones, and Bruce Eric Kaplan, with Camilla Bray (Red Rose, The Wind That Shakes the Barley) producing.
Production on Too Much will begin in the UK in 2024. Stay tuned for updates.
