Paul Rudd - Living With Yourself

Yes, you’re seeing double.

Netflix on Thursday announced that Living With Yourself, an existential comedy starring Paul Rudd and… Paul Rudd, will premiere on Friday, Oct. 18.

The eight-episode series, which hails from Emmy and Peabody Award winner Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart), centers on Miles (Rudd), “a man who is struggling in life. When he undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version of himself. As he deals with the unintended consequences of his actions, Miles finds he must fight for his wife Kate (This Way Up‘s Aisling Bea), his career, and his very identity,” according to the official logline.

Greenberg serves as showrunner, and executive-produces alongside Rudd and series directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine). Additional EPs include Anthony Bregman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Jeff Stern (Looking), Tony Hernandez (Younger) and Jeff Blitz (Trial & Error).

Living With Yourself marks Rudd’s first leading role in a television series. He previously recurred on Friends, Parks and Recreation and Sisters, and co-starred in Wet Hot American Summer‘s limited series follow-ups First Day of Camp and Ten Years Later.
