Paul Rudd will play dual roles in a new Netflix comedy series
Today, Netflix announced a new eight-episode comedy series called Living with Yourself. Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, best known for Little Miss Sunshine, will direct and serve as executive producers, while Timothy Greenberg from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will be the showrunner.
Living With Yourself is described as a “philosophical comedy.” Paul Rudd will star as a man who decides to undertake a new treatment that will make him a better person. However, he discovers he’s actually been replaced by an improved version of himself (meaning Rudd will play a dual role). According to the release, the comedy asks the questions, “Do we really want to be better?”
