HBO has greenlighted a new comedy from Jay and Mark Duplass. Togetherness will feature two couples sharing a home, struggling to maintain their relationships while attempting to pursue their individual goals.

The Duplass brothers have been known to dish out goofy big screen features, including Cyrus and Jeff, Who Lives at Home. However, Togetherness will feature the duo in television mode in more ways than one. The comedic brothers will co-write, produce, and direct the program, which will feature half-hour episodes. The number of episodes has still not been finalized, an HBO representative confirmed to EW. Mark Duplass is also starring in the comedy, but this brother is no stranger to small screen appearances. Mark plays Brendan in the Fox comedy The Mindy Project, as well as Pete on the FX fantasy football sitcom The League.

Duplass’ character will play opposite Two and a Half Men‘s Melanie Lynskey. The third protagonist will be played by frequent Duplass collaborator Steve Zissis, who has had roles in Jeff, Who Lives at Home, Cyrus, and The Do-Deca-Pentathlon. Zissis will also write and co-produce on the series. Amanda Peet (The Good Wife, Bent) will also be joining the pilot, which won’t surface on HBO until 2014, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
