Us & Them is an American television series that was scheduled to premiere on Fox as a mid-season replacement in the 2013–14 season.[1] On May 8, 2013, Fox placed a thirteen-episode order for the single-camera comedy.[2][3][4] Based on the British series Gavin & Stacey created by James Corden and Ruth Jones, it was adapted to an American audience by David J. Rosen. On October 11, 2013, it was revealed that Fox had cut back the episode order to seven episodes.[5][6] In summer 2014, Vulture revealed that Fox would not air the show.[7] The series was first broadcast in South Africa on M-Net.[8] All seven episodes were available on Korean major IPTV networks. However, in September 2018, streaming service Sony Crackle announced it would be streaming all seven episodes starting October 1, finally giving the show its American release.[9]

Premise[edit]

After a six-month-long online romance, Gavin, who lives in New York, and Stacey, who lives in Pennsylvania, decide to meet in person. Their crazy families and friends constantly interfere in their budding relationship, which becomes more of a challenge than living in different states.
