After teasing with a first look and teaser for Hiccups & Hookups, Lionsgate Play has dropped the trailer for the series. Featuring Lara Dutta Bhupathi, Prateik Babbar, and Shinnova in the lead roles, the series is about a "new normal" family. In the trailer, we see Lara as a single mother exploring the dating life soon after achieving freedom from her marriage of 20 years. Helping her is her brother, Prateik, who has founded a dating website, believes in casual hookups.

On the other hand, Shinnova, as Lara's onscreen teenage daughter, is also seen trying all the stuff that any normal teen would do before she hits adulthood. The trailer also gives a glimpse into Lara's getting into casual relationships not only with men but also with women. The dysfunctional family definitely got our attention for their quirky lifestyle. 

Hiccups & Hookups follows the lives of three people at different periods in their lives, depicting a family that does not follow the traditional pattern of a normal family. While it's common to label families like the Raos as dysfunctional, filmmaker Kunal Kohli thinks it's vital to remember that families, like relationships, come in many shapes and sizes.

The director also said that this is the first in a series where they have explored modern relationships and how layered and complicated they can be. Kohli, in a statement, went on to say the show follows a group of family members as they discuss everything from breakfast to sexual escapades. 

The filmmaker calls it an accurate portrayal of a modern-day family. He also said that many modern-day families are capable of having open and honest dialogues about the most personal aspects of their existence.

Hiccups & Hookups will be available on Lionsgate Play on November 26, 2021.
