WATCH: The Fleishman Is in Trouble Trailer Brings the Best-Selling Novel to the Small Screen

The series premieres on Hulu in November.
  • Jesse Eisenberg finds himself in a pickle in the trailer for Fleishman Is in Trouble

    The miniseries, based on Taffy Brodresser-Akner's best-selling novel of the same name, stars Eisenberg as the titular Toby Fleishman, a recently-divorced 40-something ready to jump back into the dating world. Just as his first summer of freedom is about to begin, however, his ex-wife Rachel (Claire Danes) vanishes, leaving him with their two young children and no inkling of when she'll return. 

    "This is a story about everything," we're told. "It's about life, and marriage, and how young love can become old resentment. And money, and dissatisfaction, and jealousy, ambition, career, parenting, nostalgia, and lifelong friendship."

    Also starring Lizzy Caplan, Adam Brody, Christian Slater, and Josh Radnor, the eight episode miniseries is created by Brodesser-Akner and directed by Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris (Little Miss SunshineBattle of the Sexes). 

    Fleishman Is in Trouble debuts on Hulu November 17.
