FX has put out the first teaser for its new limited series, Fleishman is in Trouble. The show, based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name by Taffy Brodresser-Akner, premieres on Hulu on November 17.
Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), and Claire Danes (Homeland) lead the series, which is created by Brodresser-Akner.
The teaser is an entwining glimpse into the lives of these three characters, promising to be “a story about everything.” The series follows Eisenberg as a newly divorced 41-year-old looking to get back out there.
But things go sideways when his ex (Danes) goes missing right at the opening of his first summer of freedom.
Michael Gaston, Juani Feliz, Joy Suprano, Ralph Adriel Johnson, Brian Miskell, Christian Slater, and Josh Radnor have also been cast in recurring roles through the eight-episode miniseries. Several episodes are being directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the duo behind Little Miss Sunshine.
Fleishman marks Eisenberg’s first major television role, though he’s had supporting and guest roles in getting Real, The Newsroom, and Modern Family. Caplan and Danes are both no strangers to television, with both having been nominated for Primetime Emmy Awards for their work in Masters of Sex and Homeland, respectively.
Fleishman is in Trouble and will premiere on November 17 on Hulu, as a part of FX Hulu. Check out the first teaser below:
