The first trailer for Netflix’s Living With Yourself features Paul Rudd facing off against himself. The eight episode series stars Rudd as a man trying to be a better person. Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong.
In the trailer, Miles Elliott (Rudd) is just unhappy with every aspect of his life. Work is no fun, his wife (Aisling Bea) is unhappy and Miles just can’t seem to find the motivation to write his novel. He finds a business card for Top Happy Spa. They promise to rebuild his DNA and made a better person. Miles takes a leap and wakes up a happy man. Until Miles comes home. Wait…what?
There are two Miles and one life. Miles and Miles struggle to comprehend how this happened and how they are going to coexist. Miles 1 realizes that Miles 2 is better than he is, but it’s his life too. He starts to hate himself…the other version of himself. And this just gets ridiculous from there.
Living With Yourself was created and written by Emmy Award winner Timothy Greenberg and directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Greenberg executive produces with Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern for Likely Story, Tony Hernandez for Jax Media, Dayton, Faris, Rudd, and Jeff Blitz.
Here is the synopsis from Netflix:
The Netflix original series Living with Yourself is an inventive existential comedy that asks: do we really want to be better? Miles (Paul Rudd) is a man 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 When he undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version of himself.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 (Aisling Bea), his career, and his very identity.
Living with Yourself premieres October 18 on Netflix.
