Netflix has been luring a lot of filmmakers – Judd Apatow being one of the most recent examples – to create series, especially relationship drama/comedies, for the small screen. The latest creative type tempted from his usual waters is indie auteur Joe Swanberg, and the result is anthology series Easy. Check out the trailer for the show below.

Gathering and impressive, eclectic cast that includes Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Jake Johnson, Marc Maron, Dave Franco, Hannibal Buress, Emily Ratajkowski, Michael Chernus, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and more, Easy tells a series of different stories about characters set in Chicago as they navigate – and fumble – their way through modern marriage, relationships, sex, love, technology and culture. We're promised a look at couples trying to spice up a longterm partnership, the perils of dating in an app-obsessed world and confronting the realities of pregnancy.

Swanberg's been reliable when it comes to small-scale observations of realistic people in films such as Happy Christmas and Digging For fire, and this feels like the right venue for him. Plus, while several of his movies haven't made it to UK screens, Easy has the Netflix advantage and will be on the streaming service from September 22.
