Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are heading to Netflix for Chuck Lorre’s comedy “The Kominsky Method.”

Lorre will write the script for the 10-episode single-camera series, and is onboard as an executive producer. Deals are still getting finalized for the project from Warner Bros. Television.

Douglas will play Sandy Kominsky, a formerly popular actor who now teaches budding thespians. Arkin portrays Norman, Sandy’s longtime agent and friend.

This is the second Netflix series for Lorre, who has the Kathy Bates-led “Disjointed” comedy debuting Aug. 25 on the streaming service.

Lorre and Douglas are with UTA. Arkin is repped by ICM Partners.
