Nick Frost Joins Justin Long in Fox Comedy ‘Sober Companion’

Frost will play an alcoholic attorney who must dry out to keep his job and freedom

Nick Frost (“Hot Fuzz”) has joined the Fox single-camera comedy pilot, “Sober Companion.”

Frost will play the series regular role of Robert: an intelligent, driven attorney who is also an addict. When Robert is so drunk that he passes out in court, he is assigned a sober companion for the next 90 days.

Robert must either stay away from everything he deems to be fun, or lose his job — and likely, his freedom.

Frost is repped by UTA, Hamilton/Hodell, Think Tank Management and Peikoff/Mahan.
