Splitting Up Together

Original Broadcast Date: March 27, 2018

While some divorces force families to split apart, Lena and Martin are Splitting Up Together in this new romantic family comedy from Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek and executive producer Ellen DeGeneres. Based on the Danish original series, Splitting Up Together stars The Office’s Jenna Fischer and Nashville alum Oliver Hudson as a newly divorced couple embracing the unconventional as they co-parent their children by trading residences each week, alternating between one living in the main house and the other in the garage apartment as they also adjust to being single for the first time in years. This new arrangement will land Lena and Martin in some precarious situations, with Lena’s doting sensibilities and Type-A personality clashing with Martin’s laid-back temperament as they attempt to raise the kids separately but together. What will Lena and Martin do with their unfamiliar moments of freedom? And how will they manage their feelings when this freedom is met with the nostalgia for what they once shared as a couple and their mutual longing for their family to be whole again? With the help of friends Arthur and Camille, plus Lena’s sister, Maya, this former couple will explore what it means to live apart...under the same roof.
