There is no such thing as a perfect couple, and NBC's upcoming comedy Perfect Couples will try to tell us why. The ensemble comedy follows three couples as they struggle to find out what makes the ideal relationship. It explores their "heroic" journeys as they try and try and try to make it work.
We have normal couple Dave (Kyle Howard) and Julia (Christine Woods), whose cool relationship is tested by Dave's other relationship -- with needy best friend Vance (Dave Walton. Vance, for his part, is in a highly dramatic relationship with Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis), and they tend to bring out the best and worst in each other.
Promos after the jump:
Finally, there's Rex (Hayes MacArthur) and Leigh (Olivia Munn). The two are the self-proclaimed experts on the field of relationships, after having attended all the requisite class and seminar on the topic. Are they the "perfect couple?" Of course not.Perfect Couples
