Netflix has ordered eight episodes of Living With Yourself, a scripted comedy series from Emmy and Peabody award victor Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Likely Story and Jax Media, with Paul Rudd attached to star and executive produce.

The series will find Rudd playing two roles in a story that follows a man struggling in life who undergoes a new treatment to become a better person. It reveals that "his own worst enemy is himself". The Daily Show and The Detour producer Timothy Greenberg will serve as executive producer and showrunner while Dayton and Faris will direct all eight episodes of the show's first season.

Living With Yourself is described as a "philosophical comedy". He'll executive-produce alongside Rudd, series directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine), Anthony Bregman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Jeff Stern (Looking), Tony Hernandez (Younger) and Jeff Blitz (Trial & Error). The show was originally ordered to pilot by IFC, but it fell through at the small network due to budgetary constraints.

Attendances at live sporting events are on the wane across Australia and the rest of the world, and the test calendar's traditional trans-Tasman blockbuster has not been immune.

Living With Yourself was initially given a series greenlight previous year at AMC Networks-owned IFC, but did not move forward.

You can now watch Rudd on the big screen in Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp which opened in theaters last month. Rudd will reprise his role as Scott Lang in the untitled Avengers 4 follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War, premiering May 3, 2019.
