Alone Together centers on Esther (Povitsky) and Benji (Aflalo), platonic best friends who want nothing more than to be accepted by the vain and status-obsessed culture. Despite their sometimes contentious relationship, when push comes to shove, they’ve got each other’s back…and they have nobody else to hang out with.
Alone Together underlines Freeform’s commitment to single-camera comedy. The network shifted its focus last year though it is still looking for its first single-camera series that will stick. It has had success in the multi-camera arena with Baby Daddy and Young & Hungry, its two returning comedy series for next year.
In addition to Povitsky and Aflalo, the pilot episode of Alone Together features guest stars Chris D’Elia, Ginger Gonzaga, Edgar Blackmon, Hayley Marie Norman, Kamilla Alnes, Jim O’Heir and Justine Lupe. Alone Together comes from Esther Povitsky, Benji Aflalo and Eben Russell, who serve as writers and executive producers. Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer, Billy Rosenberg and Hunter Covington also serve as executive producers. Daniel Gray Longino directed the pilot.
