Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship. Gary (Josh Gad) and Mary (Isla Fisher) are no different. Gary is an emotional wreck and struggles to provide for his daughter since the death of his wife. Mary has a secret she can’t bring herself to share with anyone. The universe brought these two together for a reason, they just need to keep following the signs.
The series is written and directed by Little Monsters auteur Abe Forsythe. Jodi Matterson, Bruna Papandrea, and Steve Hutensky (Nine Perfect Strangers) executive-produce alongside Fisher and Forsythe — the latter of whom directed all six episodes (which are dropping at once).
In the trailer, Gary and Mary meet when Mary crashes into Gary’s car. Some time after the accident, Mary shows up at Gary’s house to check on Emma, who was in the backseat, and the pair form an unlikely love connection. But every time Gary gets close, Mary runs away — literally. And the increasingly unsettling footage suggests that something bad happened to Mary’s (ex?) husband.
