        Wednesday, July 17 - HBO has given a series order to Togetherness, a single-camera comedy pilot written, directed and executive produced by brothers Mark and Jay Duplass. Other pilot credits include co-producer Stephanie Langhoff and Steve Zissis as an actor, writer and consulting producer.

        The network has picked up the half-hour series for 8 episodes. The comedy will go into production in Los Angeles in early 2014.
