"A New York City loathe story."
Difficult People, Hulu's newest original series, is the story of two NYC BFFs trying to make it in the world of comedy. Maybe this sounds like an overdone plot, but trust me, this series is different. Julie and Billy are self-absorbed, cynical and generally unlikable people, but they know it. They're just two self-aware assholes navigating life while they offend anyone who crosses their path.
“God, I’m so funny when I write mean things about TV shows. How come no one’s hired me to write for one?” “Because our lives are garbage and it’s the world’s fault.”
Aside from an intriguing plot, lovable characters are what make me love a TV show. Difficult People takes on a challenge here, creating two pretty terrible main characters. Despite that, I LOVE this show already.
It's full of rude humor like Curb Your Enthusiasm, has a friendship as solid as Abbi & Ilana on Broad City and makes some pretty dark jokes like those you hear on Louie.
If none of that excites you, the trailer is full of awesome guest stars. In a minute and a half we see Kate McKinnon, Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers. Oh, and did I mention, the series is executive produced by Amy Poehler?!
