CBS shared the first trailer for United States of Al, Chuck Lorre’s new comedy.
From The Big Bang Theory team, David Goetsch and Maria Ferrari join Lorre in the new comedy, which deals with the friendship between Riley, played by Parker Young, a navy combat veteran who is struggling to readjust to civilian life in Ohio, and Awalmir, known as Al, played by Adhir Kalyan, an interpreter who served with Riley in Afghanistan and just started a new life in the United States.
Like its predecessors Mom, Bob Hearts Abishola and B Positive, United Stated of Al aims to mix comedy with drama. Thus, much of the trailer focuses on Riley and Vanessa’s fragmented relationship. In addition, Al is annoyed that Riley did not tell him about the problems in his marriage, and is determined to fix their relationship.
Check out the trailer.
