Netflix Orders 8 Episodes of Comedy 'Uncoupled' Created by Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman

Netflix has today given a series order to the original comedy series Uncoupled created by Darren Star (Younger) and Jeffrey Richman (Modern Family). The first season will produce 8 episodes.

Michael thought his life was perfect until his husband blindsides him by walking out the door after 17 years. Overnight, Michael has to confront two nightmares - losing what he thought was his soulmate and suddenly finding himself a single gay man in his mid-40s in New York City.

Star and Richman will executive produce with Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns. MTV Entertainment Studios, Jax Media, Darren Star Productions and Jeffrey Richman Productions will produce.

"We couldn't hope for a more perfect home for Uncoupled than Netflix," said Star and Richman. "A romantic comedy with a gay leading man; it is a passion project for us that feels both personal and universal."

"We are excited to be partnering with Darren on another exciting new series," added Tracey Pakosta, Vice President of Original Comedy Series, Netflix. "Both Darren and Jeffrey have continuously permeated the zeitgeist by creating characters and stories that resonate with audiences around the world."
