The Duplass Brothers Talk “Togetherness” “Mumblecore” is a film genre of sorts. In mumblecore movies, very little happens and everyone acts pretty much like you and me. They’re little, low-budget films with a sense of the absurd. Brothers Mark and Jay Duplass are mumblecore royalty, with films like The Puffy Chair, Baghead, and The Do-Deca-Pentathalon. They discuss their new TV show, Togetherness, which debuts on HBO this Sunday.

He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
