After his ex-wife Rachel disappears, leaving their kids behind, surgeon Toby Fleishman is left trying to balance his dating life, his job, and taking care of his children. As the series proceeds, we will see Toby confront everything that went wrong in his marriage. The story is narrated by Toby’s friend, Libby. According to a book review by the New Yorker, the Fleishman is in Trouble novel “turns the marriage novel inside out.”

From that review, we expect to see a fresh take on the bitter divorce trope, and hopefully, it will be as entertaining as fans of the book claimed it to be. It will all depend on how different from the novel the miniseries is. Book adaptations have disappointed us in the past. Maybe this one won’t.

Here is a synopsis of Fleishman is in Trouble, released by the Hollywood Reporter:

Fleishman Is in Trouble follows recently separated surgeon Toby Fleishman as he enters the world of app-based dating and finds more success than he ever had the last time he was single. When his ex-wife, Rachel, disappears, he’s left with their kids and no hint of where she is or whether she plans to return. Balancing parenting, friends, a long-awaited promotion at the hospital, and all the eligible women Manhattan has to offer, he realizes he’ll never be able to figure out what happened to Rachel until he can more honestly examine their marriage. Libby is Toby’s long-time friend and the narrator.—The Hollywood Reporter.
