The half-hour pilot, "Togetherness," revolves round two couples living under the same roof who struggle to keep their relationships alive while pursuing their individual dreams. The Duplass brothers will write, executive produce and direct the pilot.

Stephanie Langhoff of Duplass Brothers Productions will serve as co-executive producer.

Last month, HBO ordered a pilot for the comedy "People in New Jersey," about an adult brother and sister who puzzle through the mysteries of life's big and small mysteries while living in the Garden State.
