Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner are returning to television in Difficult People, the new Hulu series produced by Amy Poehler. The two actors play “less successful versions of themselves,” according to Klausner. She should know, as she is the show’s creator.
Joining the two curmudgeons in the awful hellscape that is New York City are the likes of Kate McKinnon, Andrea Martin, Martin Short, Fred Armisen, Debbie Harry, Ana Gasteyer, Amy Sedaris, and Gabourey Sidibe. Well, at the very least, they’re all in the above trailer. But now, I expect to see all of them in every episode. Is that too much to ask? Probably.
Difficult People will give us a hard time when it premieres on Hulu on August 5.
