'Splitting Up Together': Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson Are a Modern Family in First Poster (Exclusive)
By Philiana Ng
Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson are the definition of a modern family in their new ABC series, Splitting Up Together.
ET exclusively debuts a first look at the official poster for the midseason comedy, executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, which chronicles what happens when a couple's marriage is suddenly reignited by their divorce. In the upcoming series, Fischer and Hudson play exes, Lena and Martin, who decide to live under the same roof after they separate.
"Nothing brings a couple closer together than being apart," the series' tagline teases.
Earlier this month, Fischer previewed her new show at the winter Television Critics Association press tour, explaining why it took her several years after the end of The Office to sign on for another comedy series.
"There was just something about this script that spoke to me. I really relate to the character. That's kind of what I look for in a project, is do I see myself in this person that I have the possibility to play? I'm a wife and a mother now, and I feel like I'm going to get to express this whole other part of my personality, the part of my personality that likes to make lists and anticipate things a week in advance and who likes to be in control of things. These are all aspects of the character that I related to and that I was excited to kind of dig into," Fischer told reporters. "While it's a show about two people who are divorced, I don't think you have to be divorced, or to have experienced divorce, in order to relate to the show."
Splitting Up Together premieres Tuesday, March 27 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
