In every comedy film in which Rose Byrne appears, she steals the show, and often, the entire movie. So where is Byrne’s big breakout comedy role? When is Byrne going to get the massive stardom she deserves? Byrne might be finally getting her due with the Apple TV+ series, Physical. A dark comedy series created by Annie Weisman (Desperate Housewives) and directed by I, Tonya filmmaker Craig Gillespie among others, Physical stars Byrne as a bedraggled ’80s housewife who discovers the wonderful world of aerobics and sets out to build a fitness empire. Watch the Physical trailer below.
Apple TV+ has debuted the trailer for Physical, a 10-episode dark comedy starring Rose Byrne as an unhappy housewife whose new obsession with aerobics turns into an unlikely business venture. The trailer doesn’t hide much of the story, charting Byrne’s growth from quietly tortured housewife to ruthless businesswoman. Also starring in the series is Rory Scovel, Dierdre Friel, Della Saba, Lou Taylor Pucci, Paul Sparks, and Ashley Liao.
Annie Weiseman creates, writes, executive produces and serves as showrunner for Physical, which feels like the kind of darkly comic antiheroine story that I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie thrives in. He directs a few episodes, alongside Liza Johnson and Stephanie Laing. All three also serve as executive producers along with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements for Tomorrow Studios, Alexandra Cunningham, John McNamara, Sera Gamble and Byrne. The series is produced by Apple TV+ by Tomorrow Studios under Weiseman’s overall deal with Apple.
Here is the synopsis for Physical:
Physical will premiere on Apple TV+ with its first three episodes, on Friday, June 18, 2021, followed by one new episode every Friday.
