And they perfectly convey that everyday awkwardness we know all too well.
So if you've enjoyed any of Reitman's movies before, there's no doubt you'll find a match in Casual.
The couple first started dating last summer, when reports showed Harry and Meghan together at Toronto’s Soho House.
The pair have since been photographed together many times and are enjoying a blossoming relationship.
Jason Reitman is making his first foray into television with Hulu’s new comedy series “Casual.” “When I write a film, all I think about is where the thing ends and how to get the audience there,” the “Up in the Air” director said in an interview with The Wrap. You need the audience to return the next week.” So when creating his first show, the director was looking for a series that could last.
What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity.
He waited for the director to read his script about two siblings who live together as they explore online dating. With the first season of “Casual,” Hulu gave Reitman, Lehmann, and executive producers Liz Tigelaar (she runs the writer’s room) and Helen Estabrook (she masterminds production) plenty of leeway to create the 10-episode, half-hour series.
“Rather than one person leading,” said Lehmann during our video interview at Reitman’s Sunset Boulevard office, “we are fortunate that four of us all have a voice in it.” Thanks to three charismatic, skilled actors—Michaela Watkins and Tommy Dewey as siblings Valerie and Alex, and Tara Lynne Barr as Valerie’s daughter Laura—the series is as dramatic as it is funny. “The voice of the characters was so clear on the page, that we needed to find someone who knew how to sing the notes. ’ Tommy walked in: ‘He gets it, he knows what we’re trying to say.'” READ MORE: How ‘Casual’ Creator Zander Lehmann Got Real About His Dating Comedy (That’s More of A Drama) Reitman loved the idea of having your sibling as your soul mate: “What if no matter what relationship, whether friendship or romantic relationship, the person you want to go back to is the person you came into the world with, someone in your family?
Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle has surprised fans by ending her role as ambassador to Canadian clothing company Reitmans, reports the Daily Mail.
Meghan, 35, modelled for the fashion brand and designed two collections last year featuring a vegan leather range.
One of Jason Reitman’s gifts as a filmmaker is tuning into idiosyncratic voices who speak to him, from writer Diablo Cody (“Juno”) to Zander Lehmann (“Casual”).
