Togetherness has been quick to develop a following. The 427,000 Live+Same Day viewership for its series debut this month has grown to 2.6 million and counting on various HBO platforms.
Created by the Duplass brothers and Steve Zissis, Togetherness follows two couples living under one roof on the fringes of Los Angeles. Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet and Steve Zissis star. The brothers executive produce, with Zissis serving as consulting producer.
