Jesse Eisenberg & Claire Danes In Chaos

Jesse Eisenberg, Claire Danes, Lizzy Caplan, and Adam Brody star in the chaotic trailer for Fleishman Is In Trouble, debuting November 17 on Hulu.

Jesse Eisenberg and Claire Danes lead the chaotic trailer for FX’s Fleishman Is In Trouble. The series is based on the debut novel of author Taffy Brodesser-Akner, which followed a bitter Manhattan couple going through a tense divorce. The book explored a number of themes, including the nature of long-term relationships and the messiness of being a new divorcee, receiving largely favorable reviews that praised Brodesser-Akner’s satirical style.

Fleishman Is In Trouble, which will be adapted by Brodesser-Akner, marks Eisenberg’s first lead role on a television show since he starred in the short-lived 2000 dramedy Get Real. It also continues Danes’ presence on the small screen, after the actor’s award-winning portrayal of Carrie Mathison on Homeland and her performance in the recent Apple TV+ drama The Essex Serpent. With the debut of Fleishman Is In Trouble just weeks away, the full trailer offers a glimpse of some of the other familiar faces can expect to see.

FX Networks has debuted the full trailer for Fleishman Is In Trouble, which debuts on Hulu with two episodes on November 17. The trailer teases the extent of the unhappiness between Toby Fleishman (Eisenberg) and his ex-wife Rachel (Danes). It also shows how Toby’s tone starts to shift once he realizes that Rachel has gone missing — and that something might’ve happened to her. It also highlights the show’s notable supporting cast, including Lizzy Caplan, Adam Brody, Christian Slater, and How I Met Your Mother alum Josh Radnor.

What To Expect From Fleishman Is In Trouble

Much like its source material, and consisting of eight total episodes, Fleishman Is In Trouble will center on Toby. The new divorcee is a successful doctor in his forties that has started to find the success which eluded him during his youth. But when his ex-wife, Rachel, vanishes without a trace, he has to balance looking after his kids, his demanding job, and all of his fleeting New York hookups. But as Rachel’s whereabouts remain unknown, Toby realizes he has to be honest about where their marriage went wrong if he ever hopes to figure out what happened to her.

The trailer for Fleishman Is In Trouble promises to match the book, in terms of tone and the subjects it tackles. Helped along by a popular cast, many of whom earned legions of fans with their past performances, in addition to fans of the novel itself, the upcoming Hulu show might be poised to end up as a late entry as one of the best series of the year.
