If you've been missing Rashida Jones ever since Karen Filippelli left Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch, your wait is almost over. Unhitched, the new Fox comedy starring Jones, Craig Bierko, Johnny Sneed, and Shaun Majumder as four newly single, 30-something friends living together in Boston and attempting to restart their romantic lives, is set to premiere Mar. 2.
Bierko's Jack "Gator" Gately is a recent divorcee who still believes he can find "the one." He probably can't get any good advice from his friend Tommy (Sneed), a womanizing beer brewer who's been divorced three times already. Rounding out the guys' section is Freddy (Majumder), a heart surgeon who hasn't been on a date since approximately 1992. Then there's Kate (Jones), a lawyer who's — conveniently — handled all three of the guys' divorces and now is reentering the rocky dating pool herself after being dumped by her fiancé of seven years.
The comedy comes from the Farrelly Brothers (Dumb and Dumber, Shallow Hal, There's Something About Mary), and whether you like their particular brand of bawdy humor will probably have a lot to do with your feelings about these first clips from Unhitched. In one, Tommy picks up a girl at the ATM and goes home with her, only to walk in on an intervention her family is holding to talk about her sex addiction. In the other, Gator ends up in a kinky sex scene with a monkey. Oh, those Farrelly Bros., always pushing the envelope.
