Matt, a successful app developer in his 40s, is beyond ready to start a family. But life hasn’t gone the way he thought it would. Single and without any romantic prospects, Matt (Ed Helms) makes the unconventional decision to hire a surrogate to carry his baby and to raise his child as a single father. In need of the finances to pursue a college degree, Anna (Patti Harrison), a young barista with a complicated past, is hired as Matt’s surrogate, creating an oddly intimate dynamic for two single straight strangers. Matt and Anna couldn’t be more different. Matt is an over-eager tech nerd who is bursting at the seams to tell people about his new baby, and Anna is a pessimistic millennial with a dry sense of humor, who’d rather keep the news of this pregnancy to herself. In fact, the only thing these two seemingly have in common is their loneliness. But while struggling to navigate the boundaries of their awkward arrangement, Matt and Anna may find themselves in the middle of a love story, and refreshingly, a platonic love story. Featuring a dynamic cast of comedy gems including Tig Notaro, Julio Torres, Anna Konkle, and Sufe Bradshaw, TOGETHER TOGETHER is a delightful comedy about a love and friendship formed in the most unlikely circumstances. —G.S.
