Former Saturday Night Live standouts Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph partner to play Oscar and June, a loving and long-married couple whose life is so routine that June’s suggestion of changing up their annual lake house vacation to go skiing is a shocking departure.
“June is happy, but she wants to break out of the pattern of her life,” says Matt Hubbard, who serves as an executive producer on the show with fellow Parks and Recreation veteran Alan Yang. “That’s her journey through the series. Oscar, on the other hand, is so averse to any conflict that it’s detrimental to him living his life.”
Needless to say, the mountain sojourn changes their lives forever. “The emotional core of the show is about whether long-term relationships can be sustainable, and if so, how?” Yang hints.
While that sounds like serious subject matter, Forever is a comedy. Just don’t expect to see Armisen and Rudolph hamming it up SNL-style. “We wanted to explore sides of the costars that haven’t been seen as much,” explains Yang. “It’s like you’re watching Fred and Maya in a show that’s like a funnier David Lynch movie.” - Ileane Rudolph
