ABC has ordered to a series a new sitcom starring Zach Braff. The project was formerly working under the title “Start Up.”
Based on the podcast StartUp, the sitcome follows Alex Schuman (Braff), a brilliant radio journalist, husband and father of two who is about to do something crazy—quit his job and start his own company. He quickly discovers it’s going to be a lot harder than he thought. Braff stars, directs and is executive producer with Matt Tarses (“Scrubs”) and Davis Entertainment (“Dr. Ken,” “Blacklist”).
The series also stars Tiya Sircar as Rooni, Hillary Anne Matthews as Deirdre, Michael Imperioli as Eddie, Elisha Henig as Ben and Audyssie James as Soraya.
John Davis and John Fox are executive producers of the series, from Davis Entertainment as are Alex Blumberg, Chris Gilberti and Matt Lieber (Gimlet Media) in association with Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios.
