Apple TV+ releases first look at Physical

Set in the idyllic but fragile beach paradise of sunny 1980s San Diego, “Physical” is a half-hour dark comedy following Sheila Rubin (played by Byrne), a quietly tortured, seemingly dutiful housewife supporting her smart but controversial husband’s bid for state assembly. But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own darkly funny take on life she rarely lets the world see. She’s also battling a complex set of personal demons relating to her self-image that is, until she finds release through the unlikeliest source: the world of aerobics.


The description of the show suggests the lead character to be going through an “epic journey” from being a stifled, overlooked enabler to a confident person. She is also described as the female lifestyle guru. It is also added that such a person is taken for granted in the current age (today).
