We can all agree breaking up is hard to do, but just try breaking up and taking turns living in the garage apartment, which is the starting point of ABC's new half-hour comedy, Splitting Up Together.

As exes Lena and Martin, Jenna Fischer (The Office) and Oliver Hudson (Rules of Engagement, Nashville) rule the house and kids on alternate weeks—and gain insights as they go. The series also stars Lindsay Price, Bobby Lee, and Diane Farr, as well as being executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres.

Also, Fischer is taking TVInsider behind the scenes with her own post-mortem stories that we'll be posting here after each episode.
