Judd Apatow is going from the big screen to your computer screen.

Netflix announced Tuesday that it signed a two-season deal for the mogul’s new comedy series Love, starring Community’s Gillian Jacobs and I Love You Beth Cooper star Paul Rust, who will also be a writer on the show.

Apatow and Rust will be joined by Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Lesley Arfin to pen the series.

“Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank — often at the same time,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”

There had been rumors earlier this summer that the show would appear on Netflix competitor Hulu.

Apatow created short-lived television hit Freaks and Geeks. Love will be his first series since Undeclared, which ended in 2003.
