Physical – trailer

Rose Byrne rediscovers herself after growing tired of being a downtrodden suburban housewife.

Today Apple TV+ debuted the trailer for Physical, a 10-episode comedy drama starring Rose Byrne and created by Annie Weisman that will make its global premiere on Friday, June 18, 2021, exclusively on Apple TV+.

Set in the idyllic but fragile beach paradise of sunny 1980s San Diego, Physical is a half-hour dark comedy following Sheila Rubin (Byrne), a quietly tortured, seemingly dutiful housewife supporting her smart but controversial husband’s bid for state assembly. But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own darkly funny take on life she rarely lets the world see. She’s also battling a complex set of personal demons relating to her self-image…. that is, until she finds release through the unlikeliest source: the world of aerobics.

At first hooked on the exercise itself, Sheila’s real road to empowerment comes when she discovers a way to merge this newfound passion with the burgeoning technology of videotape to start a revolutionary business. The series tracks her epic journey from a stifled, overlooked enabler to a powerful, confident economic force, as Sheila transforms into someone we take for granted today (but was entirely radical at the time) — the female lifestyle guru. 

In addition to Byrne, Physical stars Rory Scovel, Dierdre Friel, Della Saba, Lou Taylor Pucci, Paul Sparks and Ashley Liao. 

Physical will premiere with the first three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday. Available to stream on Friday 18 June 2021.
