AppleTV+ has released a trailer for new Rose Byrne show Physical.

We have our first full look at new AppleTV+ show Physical, starring Rose Byrne (Peter Rabbit 2). The 10-episode dramedy created by Annie Weisman will make its global premiere on Friday, June 18, 2021, exclusively on Apple TV+.

Set in the idyllic but fragile beach paradise of sunny 1980s San Diego, Physical is a half-hour dark comedy following Sheila Rubin (Byrne), a quietly tortured, seemingly dutiful housewife supporting her smart but controversial husband’s bid for state assembly. But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own darkly funny take on life she rarely lets the world see. She’s also battling a complex set of personal demons relating to her self-image…. that is, until she finds release through the unlikeliest source: the world of aerobics.

The show was created, written and produced by Weisman, with episodes directed by Craig Gillespie, Liza Johnson and Stephanie Laing. You might recognise Gillespie’s name, he’s the director behind today’s new release Cruella. Darkly funny women and killer soundtracks are clearly in his wheelhouse. Byrne’s latest film Peter Rabbit 2 has dominated the box office for the last week, with Cruella poised to do the same this weekend, it looks like this pair are ready to rule the small screen for the summer too.

In addition to Byrne, Physical stars Rory Scovel, Dierdre Friel, Della Saba, Lou Taylor Pucci, Paul Sparks and Ashley Liao.

The trailer is below, and whilst not a film, with calibre like this in front and behind the camera, it seems like one to watch.

Physical will premiere with the first three episodes on Friday, June 18, 2021, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
