Say ‘Hi, gay!’ to a new rom-com series starring Megan Stalter

If you think Megan Stalter is criminally underutilized on Hacks, you’re not alone. The actress and stand-up comedian — also well known for her viral videos, like her infamous pastiche of corporations during Pride — has a well-earned legion of fans, and now they get to see her take center stage in a new series for Netflix.

The series, Too Much, is a romantic comedy written, directed, and produced by Lena Dunham. It will be the Girls creator’s first television project since 2018’s short-lived Camping, and her return is long overdue. Too Much follows Jessica (Stalter), a mid-30s New Yorker healing from a bad breakup. When staying in New York proves too painful, she heads overseas to London to start a new life as a single woman. Fate, of course, has other plans.

Playing opposite Stalter is Will Sharpe, best known for his role on season two of The White Lotus. You might recall his infamous shower scene, or Theo James saying he wanted to be inside of him. Y’know, casual bromance stuff. 

Sharpe will play Felix, a less-than-typical leading man. Despite being an immature playboy with a faltering music career, he and Stalter’s Jessica have an undeniable connection, one that has them both wondering if true love really does exist. Cue the swoons and squeals.

Fans of Stalter, Sharpe, and Dunham are all rejoicing in equal measure. As one fan put, “A non-skinny woman in a rom-com written by one of the greatest modern writers and acting opposite current indie TV heartthrob … I could cry.” 

Too Much sounds like the perfect storm of romance, comedy, and sharp writing we desperately need in modern television, and we’ll all be seated whenever it graces our screens.
