Living With Yourself Trailer: It's Paul Rudd vs. Paul Rudd!

at .

Paul Rudd is struggling to exist in the first trailer for his new Netflix series, Living With Yourself. 

The series "is an inventive existential comedy that asks: do we really want to be better?" according to Netflix. 

Miles (Paul Rudd) is a man struggling in life. When he undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version of himself.

As he deals with the unintended consequences of his actions, Miles finds he must fight for his wife (Aisling Bea), his career, and his very identity.

Told from multiple perspectives, the eight-episode series was created and written by Emmy® Award winner Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (The Battle of the Sexes, Little Miss Sunshine) and stars Paul Rudd.

The series certainly looks to be filled with comical moments, but it also asks some important questions. 

More pressing is how Miles 1.0 is going to deal with Miles 2.0, and how will everyone else react to having two very different iterations of him around.

Whether Miles will be able to find the right way to go about things, we don't quite know. 

The most intriguing aspect of the series is the multiple perspectives. That will be a great storytelling device to give us everything we need to know about these characters.

Living With Yourself launches Friday, October 18, globally.

Netflix Quotes

Inej: Kaz, if not Saints, what do you believe in?
Kaz: Myself.
Inej: Why'd I even ask?
Kaz: And you. And Jesper. My Crows.
Inej: Because we flock to your bidding? Like the animals of vengeance, you named us after?
Kaz: Crows don't just remember the faces of people who wronged them. They also remember those who were kind. They tell each other who to look after and who to watch out for. No Saint ever watched over me. Not like you have.

The Darkling: Perhaps. But you have given me one. A chance to make amends, to finally win. The Fold was not your mistake --
Alina: The Fold was no mistake!
The Darkling: I never intended for it to be the blight it's become. Or for men like the King or Zlatan to exploit it for their own gain.
Alina: You put this collar on me to exploit my power for your gain!
The Darkling: For us. To help us conquer the Fold together. You and me. You cannot do this on your own. And neither can I.
Alina: We could've had this. All of it. You could've made me your equal. Instead, you made me this. You don't care who suffers, as long as you win.
The Darkling: Fine. Make me your villain.
