Based on a novel of the same name, Fleishman is in Trouble is an FX limited series about Toby Fleishman—a divorced doctor and father who had just started dipping his toes into the dating pool when his ex-wife mysteriously disappears. With the help of his life-long friends, Toby combs through the memories of their relationship to look for answers.
Our opinion of the premise
It’s wild to me that I had NO CLUE this series was even set to come out before writing this article, especially with the amount of talent involved in the project. However, when you read the premise of the series, there is quite a bit of intrigue. I am intrigued to see if the writers get the separation between parents and co-parenting right. The premise alone, I am interested in at least checking out the pilot.
Fleishman Is in Trouble release date
The series will be released on Hulu on Thursday, November 17th, at 12 am PT.

Is there a trailer?
There sure is! Check it out below:
Adam Brody is back on TV, and that makes my heart so happy. Okay, now onto the trailer. It seems to have a bit of dark humor to the tone of the series, which I think I like quite a bit. I also believe that there is a deep honesty in the trailer that highlights some strong, relatable things that reeled me in. Another thing I loved was the split between the narration and the scenes. It gives you an idea of what the show will be about and a taste of this incredible ensemble. You have two powerhouse actors in this with Eisenberg and Danes that will go toe to toe, but the rest of the cast seems to be vital supporting players. I mentioned not hearing about the series, but I can’t wait to watch it.
