Rose Byrne is getting Physical. Apple TV+ revealed a first look at the actress in her new series during their Television Critics Association winter press tour on Friday.
Byrne stars in the dramedy as Sheila Rubin, a quietly tortured, seemingly dutiful housewife supporting her smart but controversial husband’s bid for state assembly. But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own darkly funny take on life she rarely lets the world see. She’s also battling a complex set of personal demons relating to her self-image…. that is, until she finds release through the unlikeliest source: the world of aerobics.
At first hooked on the exercise itself, Sheila’s real road to empowerment comes when she discovers a way to merge this newfound passion with the burgeoning technology of videotape to start a revolutionary business. The series tracks her epic journey from a stifled, overlooked enabler to a powerful, confident economic force, as Sheila transforms into someone we take for granted today (but was entirely radical at the time) — the female lifestyle guru.
The show is set in 1980s San Diego and gives off big ’80s vibes — so naturally Byrne rocks big ’80s hair. Physical is created by Annie Weisman and in addition to Byrne, stars Rory Scovel, Dierdre Friel, Della Saba, Lou Taylor Pucci, Paul Sparks and Ashley Liao.
The 10-episode series premieres this summer on Apple TV+.
