We’re still reeling from word that talks for Hulu to bring back Community fell apart, but there’s a silver lining! It looks like Hulu also has a Judd Apatow pilot in the works starring none other than Gillian Jacobs! Don’t Britta this one for us, Hulu.

And then on to excitement!

The show is tentatively titled Love, and it’s already got a pilot script by by Judd Apatow, Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Lesley Arfin, and Paul Rust (Super Fun Night). It’s not a done deal yet, but it looks way closer to one than the Community talks. Vulture broke the news and has this to say about the show’s content:

A person familiar with the pilot script describes Love as a character-based comedy revolving around relationships, romantic and otherwise, with one (very messed-up) couple in particular at the center. And, because this is Judd Apatow, the pilot script has a couple of bad words and talks a little bit about s-e-x. Should Hulu close the deal for Love, it would be a big get for the new content team at the streaming service.

Jacobs was great as Britta on Community (and still is, somewhere in a brighter timeline…), but she often got tasked with being the buzzkill (sometimes literally). It’ll be nice to see her get to take on a starring role in a new comedy.
