Apple TV+ on Tuesday shared a new video giving a behind-the-scenes look at its 1980s dark comedy show "Physical," which stars Rose Byrne.

The clip, published to the official Apple TV+ YouTube channel, features commentary and insights from series showrunner Annie Weisman, as well as actors like Rory Scovel, Della Saba, Dierdre Friel, and Byrne.

"Physical" follows Sheila Rubin, "a quietly tormented housewife" in 1980s San Diego whose discovery of aerobics kick-starts a journey toward empowerment and success.

In addition to detailing the setting of '80s Southern California, the video also gives insight on some of the characters of the show — including Sheila's struggles with body dysmorphia and bulimia.

"Physical" is directed by Liza Johnson, Stephanie Laing, and Craig Gillespie. In addition to Scovel, Saba, and Friel, other co-stars include Lou Taylor Pucci, Paul Sparks, and Ashley Liao.

The series debuted on Apple TV+ on June 18. New episodes premiere each Friday.
