The half-hour comedy, “Married,” centers on Russ (Faxon) and Lina (Greer), who are described as “miserably in love.” Being married for several years, the couple has forgotten what it’s like to have romance in the relationship, with responsibilities like kids and debt taking a toll on them. The series will explore how this couple navigates through the realities of married life and why, despite everything, they are each other’s best friend.
While the premise may sound typical of any family TV show, the pair of actors is, aside from being a great match, comes with pedigree. Greer is a fan favorite, and she is a familiar fixture on FX, being the voice of one of the lead characters on “Archer,” FX’s cult animated series. Faxon, other than being an accomplished comedian, is one of the Oscar-winning writer of “The Descendants,” a movie that starred George Clooney in 2011.

Also included in the cast are comedians Jenny Slate (“Parks and Recreation”), John Hodgman (“The Venture Brothers”) and Brett Gelman (“Go On”). Paul Rieser, a veteran of couple comedies, having starred on the top-rating NBC series “Mad About You” in the 1990s with Helen Hunt, will be a recurring guest star, according to Deadline.
