LOS ANGELES (AP) — Netflix says filmmaker Judd Apatow co-created a new series that will take a frank, comic look at modern relationships.

Netflix said Tuesday it has made a two-season commitment to the series, titled "Love." It will star Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs as a couple learning about the ups and downs of intimacy and commitment.

Rust joined with Apatow and writer-producer Lesley Arfin to create the series. Apatow's film credits include "Superbad," and he is an executive producer of HBO's "Girls."

Jacobs plays the character Britta on "Community."

Netflix said the comedy "Love" will debut online with 10 episodes in 2016, followed by a dozen episodes in 2017.
