Watch The Netflix Trailer For Living With Yourself Starring Paul Rudd

Netflix has released the official Living With You trailer starring Paul Rudd (and Paul Rudd) in the upcoming philosophical comedy series highlighting the actor’s dual lead roles.

The eight-episode season will see Rudd working double-time in the story of a man named Myles struggling with his life who undergoes a novel treatment to become a better person. He then finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version — revealing that his own worst enemy is himself. Netflix’s “fresh and inventive” philosophical comedy will ask if people really want to be better.

Living With Yourself was created by Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart) who will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Oscar nominees Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine) are also set to executive produce as well as direct. Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern are overseeing the project for their Likely Story banner with Jax Media’s Tony Hernandez, Rudd, and Jeff Blitz executive producing.

Living with Yourself is set to premiere on the streaming service on October 18.

Netflix To Stream All 180 Episodes of Seinfeld In 2021

Netflix and Sony Pictures Television has announced that all 180 episodes of Seinfeld will appear on Netflix for worldwide streaming starting in 2021. All episodes of the series are currently available for streaming on Hulu.

“Seinfeld is the television comedy that all television comedy is measured against,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in a statement. “It is as fresh and funny as ever and will be available to the world in 4K for the first time.”

The future of the Emmy award winning series’ online presence has been up in the air as various entertainment companies begin to launch and plot their own streaming services. Netflix has already lost streaming rights for The Office and Friends, casualties of the competitive streaming market as both are headed to NBC Universal’s forthcoming streaming service and WarnerMedia’s HBO Max, respectively. The Los Angeles times reports that for this new deal Netflix paid “far more than the $500 million” that NBC Universal used to get back streaming rights to The Office.

Seinfeld‘s appearance on Netflix isn’t a huge shock from one perspective as co-creator and star Jerry Seinfeld has been associated with the streaming service for many years, premiering new episodes of his series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and the Grammy nominated special Jerry Before Seinfeld on Netflix. On the other hand it is surprising to see NBC Universal lose out on the series as Seinfeld was the flagship series for the network during its initial run.

An Emmy and Golden Globe winning series, Jerry Seinfeld stars as a cartoonish version of himself in the popular sitcom, often described as “the show about nothing.” Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards also star in the series.

Revisit Jesse Pinkman’s Breaking Bad Journey In All New Recap

Netflix is kicking off their Breaking Bad rewatch campaign with a video recap featuring anthemic music by the Grammy nominated duo, Chloe X Halle. 

Using the 1950’s doo-wop tune “Enchanted,” made famous by The Platters, the piece revisits the many painful, soul crushing moments Jesse (Aaron Paul) has gone through over the course of the five seasons of Breaking Bad… all those moments lead up to where we last see him in the final episode. The song choice is particularly special to Jesse since it’s the same music that plays when he tries Heroin for the first time with his now deceased girlfriend Jane (played Krysten Ritter).  

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is written and directed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. The Netflix Television Event follows fugitive Jesse Pinkman (Paul) as he runs from his captors, the law and his past. The movie is produced by Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, Diane Mercer and Paul, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Watch The Trailer For Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat

When her idyllic vacation takes an unthinkable turn, Ellen Martin (Academy Award winner Meryl Streep) begins investigating a fake insurance policy, only to find herself down a rabbit hole of questionable dealings that can be linked to a Panama City law firm and its vested interest in helping the world’s wealthiest citizens amass even larger fortunes. The charming — and very well-dressed — founding partners Jürgen Mossack (Academy Award winner Gary Oldman) and Ramón Fonseca (Golden Globe nominee Antonio Banderas) are experts in the seductive ways shell companies and offshore accounts help the rich and powerful prosper. They are about to show us that Ellen’s predicament only hints at the tax evasion, bribery and other illicit absurdities that the super wealthy indulge in to support the world’s corrupt financial system.

Zipping through a kaleidoscope of comic detours in China, Mexico, Africa (via Los Angeles) and the Caribbean en route to 2016’s Panama Papers publication — where journalists revealed the secret, leaked documents of Mossack Fonseca’s high-profile patrons — The Laundromat is directed by Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven, Magic Mike, High Flying Bird) with a screenplay by Scott Z. Burns (The Informant!, The Report), adapted from “Secrecy World” by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Jake Bernstein. 

The film’s cast includes Jeffrey Wright, Melissa Rauch, Jeff Michalski, Jane Morris, Robert Patrick, David Schwimmer, Cristela Alonzo, Larry Clarke, Will Forte, Chris Parnell, Nonso Anozie, Larry Wilmore, Jessica Allain, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Matthias Schoenaerts, Rosalind Chao, Kunjue Li, Ming Lo, with James Cromwell and Sharon Stone.

The Laundromat will have a platform release starting September 27 in Los Angeles, New York and the UK, additional engagements in U.S. and international cities will rollout October 4 and October 11.  The film will be released on Netflix on October 18 with an expanded theatrical release in the U.S. and international markets.
