Neil Patrick Harris is making his return to TV comedy with Netflix’s new series Uncoupled.
After 17 years, your life partner walks out on you. That’s the simple premise of the new series from co-creators Darren Star (Sex and the City, Emily in Paris) and Jeffrey Richman (Modern Family). (I guess Gay Sex and the City was too on the nose for a title…?)
Harris is Michael Lawson, a successful NYC real estate agent with a great career, a supportive family, close friends, and a loving relationship with Tuc Watkins.
But when Colin unexpectedly moves out on the eve of his 50th birthday, leaving Michael completely blindsided, he has to confront two nightmares: losing the man he thought was his soulmate, and suddenly finding himself a single gay man in his mid-forties in NYC.
Michael’s got his best gal pal Suzanne (Tisha Campbell) and haute client Claire (Oscar-winner, Marcia Gay Harden) who’s also going through a divorce. Besties Billy (Emerson Brooks) and Stanley (Brooks Ashmanskas) are also along for the bumpy ride into dating and dick pics.
Stanley advises Michael, referencing an app,
You need a dick pic.
You won’t get anywhere on this without one.”
Cut to NPH in a bathroom trying to get JUST the right angle.
You had us at dick pic…
The first season of Uncoupled streams on Netflix starting July 29.
