Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet. You’ll find 2015′s answer to Whiplash located somewhere in the stack below. Click on the individual titles below, for the film’s profile. »

It was an admirable modest hit prior to leaving Park City in 2012, but who knew that Leslye Headland’s feature debut would turn into a major VOD hit? The RADiUS acquisitions people certainly had a hunch and played their Bachelorette cards right. It came as no surprise when filming commenced this past June on her New York City shot, sophomore film — which lined up Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis with supporting players Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet and Margarita Levieva. It’s had plenty of time in post-production and it certainly feels like a high value acquisitions title that may or may not be too big for the fest. Nonetheless, Sleeping with Other People has some of that indie cred ingredients that could push it into the fest.

Elbaum has successfully shepherded an eclectic raft of films from inception to release, including “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” Kristen Wiig starrer “Welcome to Me,” which premiered at Toronto, and the upcoming “Sleeping With Other People.”
“I’ve been drawn to indie scripts recently as I’ve been able to get them made so quickly — three in just a year,” says Elbaum, who got her start as Will Ferrell’s assistant. “I look for strong characters and material I can relate to and connect with.”
She also looks for “like-minded” collaborators. Elbaum has worked with Gary Sanchez Prods. since the company was founded in 2006 by Ferrell and Adam McKay, helped produce several of the company’s films; she’s now head of Gloria Sanchez Prods., which she founded earlier this year.
“Sleeping” marks her second collaboration with writer-
director Leslye Headland. “We shot it in New York, which is always a challenge, »

If the first trailer for the new HBO comedy “Togetherness” is any reflection of the show at large, be prepared for some hilariously awkward moments. We wouldn’t expect anything less from filmmaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass.
The upcoming show, which follows a dysfunctional Los Angeles couple with kids, marks the Duplass brothers’ first stab at a TV series. Things take a turn for the worse in “Togetherness” when Michelle’s sister (played by Amanda Peet) and Brett’s friend (Steve Zissis) move into their already cramped house.
The eight-episode-long first season premieres on Jan. 11.

HBO has released the first Togetherness trailer for the upcoming comedy series from filmmaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass (Cyrus, Jeff Who Lives at Home). The show follows two couples living under the same roof, going through relationship difficulties as each individual pursues his or her own dream. This trailer is a strong introduction to the show, as it looks to be a relationship comedy with a bit of a cynical edge. Mark Duplass also stars in the show alongside Melanie Lynskey, Steve Zissis, and Amanda Peet. Watch the first Togetherness trailer after the jump. The eight-episode first season premieres January 11th on HBO after Girls. Via HBO. Here’s a synopsis for Togetherness: The new series Togetherness begins its eight-episode season Sunday, Jan. 11 (9:30-10:00 p.m.).

Look, I'll be honest. There is no footage I will be able to show you today — or maybe ever — that will be the equal of "Too Many Cooks." We just have to accept that the viral video bar has been permanently raised to a perhaps impassable level. But we have to allow for the ability to watch other things, even if they can't give us anything as spiritually fulfilling as "Coat" and "Pie." So let's look at the latest teaser trailers for "Orphan Black," "Girls" and HBO's new comedy "Togetherness." The "Orphan Black" clip leans much more towards "teaser" than "trailer." It's only 20 seconds long, and has no footage of the new season, but at least the music's good and appropriate: A day after HBO announced that "Girls" would be leading off an all-comedy Sunday lineup in January, we got the longest trailer yet for the new season. Tons of footage here, »

The brainchild of quirky indie brothers, Jay and Mark Duplass, Togetherness marks the sibling’s first foray into the small screen format. Their typical output has consisted mainly of full-length features, honing in on the details of their characters and evoking believable responses to the crazy situations they’re often thrown into. The proud home of stellar home entertainment, HBO, will now be launching the brothers’ career into an entirely new direction. To get a quick glimpse at what’s in store, HBO has dropped the first teaser trailer. Clocking in at a mere 40 seconds, it’s enough to get this writer excited for the 2015 TV landscape.
After receiving the greenlight for a pilot back in 2012, it’s taken time for the series to come to fruition but now the first eight episodes of the half-hour dramedy have wrapped. Enlisting a cast of fellow indie gems, Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet, »

It was all the way back in 2013 when HBO first ordered up the pilot for the Jay and Mark Duplass' "Togetherness." Two years later, the series will finally hit the small screen, but it looks like the wait has been worth it. The first teaser trailer is here and we're ready to add this to our regular viewing schedule. Bringing together a great cast which includes Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, and Amanda Peet, the half-hour dramedy follows two sisters—and their respective partners—who find themselves living under the same roof. Yeah, it sounds like a sitcom-y premise, but even this 40-second look promises richness beyond the surface. And hell, 30-minutes with this ensemble each week sounds just fine to us, and we're eager to see how this series has shaped up. Given the plum spot after "Girls," "Togethernress" debuts on January 11 at 9:30 Pm. Watch below. »

HBO has announced return dates for two comedies series along with a debut date for a new offering. The fourth season of Girls, the second season of Looking, and the first season of Togetherness will all premiere on Sunday, January 11th. While Girls and Looking are both classified as “comedies”, they’re a far cry from the traditional definition of the word. The San Francisco-centric Looking premiered last year to so-so ratings, but HBO stuck with the series and renewed it nevertheless. While I wasn’t crazy about the show overall, it’s very different from the rest of HBO’s lineup and adds some nice diversity to the pay cable channel’s original series offerings. Togetherness, meanwhile, comes from the filmmaking duo of Mark and Jay Duplass and stars Mark, Melanie Lynskey, Steve Zissis, and Amanda Peet as two couples that live under one roof. Girls will kick the night off at 9pm, »

HBO has set a premiere date for the return of Girls and Looking, as well as the debut of new series Togetherness from the Duplass brothers. On Sunday, Jan. 11, Girls will kick off the night at 9 p.m., followed by Togetherness at 9:30 p.m. and Looking at 10 p.m. For the uninitiated, Togetherness follows Los Angeles-based married couple Brett and Michelle (Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey), who are struggling to keep their spark alive, made all the more difficult when Brett’s friend Alex (Steve Zissis) and Michelle’s sister Tina (Amanda Peet) move in with them.

For the second time in three years, HBO's Sunday lineup will be drama-free in January, with the return of "Girls" and "Looking" and the debut of Jay and Mark Duplass' "Togetherness." All three will premiere on Sunday, January 11, with "Girls" beginning its fourth season at 9 p.m., "Togetherness" — starring Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, Steve Zissis and Amanda Peet as two couples living under one roof — starting its first at 9:30 and "Looking" returning for its second at 10. It is, I believe, the first time HBO has scheduled three scripted comedies on the same night(*), though it's not the first time even in recent years that HBO has had to go without a drama series on its signature night. (*) Your mileage will vary on whether you classify either "Girls" or "Looking" that way, and of course HBO had "Silicon Valley" and "Veep" leading into "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, »

The writer-director brother team of Mark and Jay Duplass (Cyrus, The Puffy Chair) shift their attention to the small screen for a moment of Togetherness. Debuting in January, the HBO comedy series focuses on Brett and Michelle (Mark and Melanie Lynskey)—a weighed-down L.A. couple with kids—and the unlikely friendship formed between Michelle’s sister (Amanda Peet) and Brett’s best friend (Steve Zissis).
