at . Comments

Gillian Jacobs will be a very busy woman in the months ahead.

The actress will appear on multiple episodes of Girls Season 4... and return as Britta for Community Season 6 on Yahoo Screen... AND she will help anchor a new Netflix comedy from Judd Apatorw.

Jacobs will star opposite Paul Rust in Love, a half-hour sitcom that has already received a two-season commitment from Netflix.

Jacobs and Rust will portray Mickey and Gus in what the streaming company refers to as "an unflinching, hilarious and excruciatingly honest take on modern relationships."

The series will track the couple as it navigates "the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid."

The first 10-episode season of Love will debut in 2016

Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank - often at the same time,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners."
