‘You Me Her’ Renewed for Seasons 2 and 3 by AT&T

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. Alta Loma Entertainment’s Peter Jaysen and Alan Gasmer also executive produce.

“I appreciate AT&T’s commitment to ‘You Me Her,’ ordering not just 1 but 2 more seasons,” said Shepherd. “It benefits us creatively, in our storytelling, and allows us to maintain this spectacular family of cast and crew. Every day is a blast because we get to make something daring, funny and truthful, which bonds us with our viewers in a very cool conversation.”

“Our viewers have opened their hearts and minds to embrace the unique relationship between Jack, Emma and Izzy,” said Chris Long, senior vice president, Original Content and Production, AT&T. “Audience strives for compelling story lines and intriguing characters. And we believe in the potential for this show to grow even more as we continue our journey with eOne.”

“‘You Me Her’ is a bold, provocative show that grabs your attention immediately,” said Morayniss, CEO, Entertainment One Television. “We’re delighted AT&T has signed on for another 2 more seasons which speaks to the strength of these dynamic characters and storytelling. We’re looking forward to seeing how this complicated, polyamorous relationship that John Scott Shepherd has brilliantly created will continue to unfold.”
