Vulture is reporting that a pretty amazing-sounding comedy may be in development for Hulu. A pilot script for a show called Love has been written by Judd Apatow, Paul Rust (Super Fun Night, and Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, with an eye on Rust and Community's Gillian Jacobs co-starring. Apatow may direct the show, and Brent Forrester (The Simpsons, The Office, Undeclared) may be the showrunner.

Here's the latest episode of Paul F. Tompkins's web chat show Speakeasy, and his guest this time around is Community's Gillian Jacobs.
