Netflix announced that it is developing the romantic comedy series Too Much, from Lena Dunham. Too Much, from Dunham and her husband Luis Felber, stars Megan Stalter (Hacks) and Will Sharpe (The White Lotus). Deadline confirmed that production will begin in the United Kingdom in 2024.
The streaming service posted on X: “A new rom-com series from Lena Dunham and husband Luis Felber is coming soon to Netflix. Too Much will star Megan Stalter and Will Sharpe and asks the question…do Americans and Brits speak the same language? The series will be produced by Working Title Television and Lena Dunham’s Good Thing Going.”
Too Much follows Jessica (Stalter), a New York workaholic reeling from a broken relationship, who takes a job in London. The character meets and forms an unusual connection with Felix (Sharpe), a musician. Dunham said in a statement: “This is a show that is very close to my heart — created with my husband Luis, cast with my favorite actors — the geniuses that are Meg and Will, along with a bevy of friends — and partnering again with Working Title, who are behind the romantic comedies that formed me Netflix has been so deeply supportive of the vision, which is to create a romantic comedy that makes us root for love, brings joy but also has the jagged edges of life.”
