Julie Klausner told EW to “picture Curb Your Enthusiasm if the two leads had never created Seinfeld” when describing her new show, Difficult People. Now you can catch the first glimpse of what that looks like in the show’s first trailer.
Executive produced by Amy Poehler, Hulu’s Difficult People follows fictionalized versions of Klausner and co-star Billy Eichner as they try to break into show business. “My daughter is a comedian — technically,” Julie’s mother, Marilyn, played by Andrea Martin, says. “That’s one of the reasons I don’t have grandchildren.”
“I can’t wait to die!” Julie cries while lying on the ground. Billy loses his job as a bartender. It’s safe to say things aren’t going well for them.
The series has no shortage of guest stars: Martin Short, Fred Armisen, Seth Meyers, Debbie Harry, and Amy Sedaris were all teased in the trailer, which can be seen below.
The show debuts Wednesday on Hulu.
