Freeform has ordered a new comedy pilot called “Alone Together” from The Lonely Island team of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. “Alone Together,” is a half-hour comedy about two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds as they try to make their way into the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles only to find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship. Esther Povitsky, (“Lady Dynamite,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) Benji Afalo (“Not Safe with Nikki Glaser”) will star in, write and executive-produce the pilot. Eben Russell will also write and executive-produce.
This pilot joins other recently announced pickups, series and pilots including season six for comedy “Baby Daddy,” and upcoming series “Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After,” “Famous In Love” and “Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger” and pilot “Issues.”
