Oliver Hudson and Jenna Fischer star in the new ABC comedy Splitting Up Together, that airs tonight at 9:30 pm /8:30 pm Central. Ellen DeGeneres’ company A Very Good Production produced the show that is based on a Danish series of the same name. Helen Hunt is one of the series’ directors.
In addition to Oliver Hudson and Jenna Fischer promoting the show, it’s been getting love from other celebrities. David Spade who worked with Hudson on Rules Of Engagement has also promoted the show on social media platforms.
Splitting Up Together is the story of Lena and Martin, a married couple with three kids whose relationship has lost its spark. They know they should separate but simply can’t afford to do so. Instead, of splitting up and moving into separate residences, they decide to live together.
The series chronicles the couple’s journey as they begin to live separate lives while under the same roof. Martin has an “a-ha” moment and begins to see where he was at fault for the marriage’s demise. With a renewed passion, he tries to save the marriage before it’s lost forever.
Is it possible the process of divorce and splitting up could actually bring them back together?

In addition to Rules of Engagement, many people are familiar with Oliver Hudson from his work on Nashville, Scream Queens, and Dawson’s Creek. The son of Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, Oliver Hudson was raised by Kurt Russell and is brother to Kate Hudson, Zachary Hudson, Emily Hudson, Lalania Hudson, Wyatt Russell and Boston Rusell.
Jenna Fischer is best known for her work on The Office, The Giant Mechanical Man, and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.
Splitting Up Together airs after the Roseanne reboot and many think that lead in will help the show get high ratings during its premiere episode.
While divorce is often considered a taboo subject, the approach that Splitting Up Together might help the show draw a conservative audience. The focus of the pilot isn’t to watch the demise of a marriage, but how there can be hope for reconciliation even when it seems none is left.
