About the show
"You Me Her," television's first "polyamorous romantic comedy," infuses the grounded and relatable sensibilities of an indie romantic comedy with a distinctive twist.
What begins as an impulsive "date" between suburban husband Jack (Poehler) and neophyte escort Izzy (Faia) spins into a whirlwind 3-way affair including Jack's wife Emma (Blanchard), who's been keeping secrets of her own.
Their arrangement soon breaks free of its financial bonds to evolve into a meaningful romance with real consequences, posing the question to viewers: What if your best, truest life looked nothing like you imagined? Would you be brave enough to live it?
DIRECTV and U-verse customers can watch "You Me Her" on U-verse Channel 1114 and DIRECTV Channel 239. They can also stream it on the DIRECTV App and U-verse App for smartphones and tablets, directv.com and uverse.com**.
