Polyromantic comedy “You Me Her” has been renewed for Season 2 and Season 3 on AT&T and DirecTV’s Audience network, it was announced Thursday.
Each new season will consist of 10 episodes. The series stars Greg Poehler, Rachel Blanchard and Priscilla Faia.
In the series, what begins as an impulsive “date” between suburban husband Jack (Poehler) and neophyte escort Izzy (Faia) spins into a whirlwind 3-way affair including Jack’s wife Emma (Blanchard), who’s been keeping secrets of her own. Their arrangement soon breaks free of its financial bonds to evolve into a meaningful romance with real consequences, posing the question to viewers: What if your best, truest life looked nothing like you imagined? Would you be brave enough to live it?
Entertainment One will continue to finance, produce and distribute “You Me Her” worldwide, with John Morayniss, CEO, Gerard Bocaccio, SVP US Scripted Development and Debra Curtis, SVP Current Programming, overseeing for the studio and Jonathan Schwartz producing. “You Me Her” was created and written by executive producer/showrunner John Scott Shepherd.
