Adam Brody Boards Netflix’s Kristen Bell-Led Comedy Series
Adam Brody has boarded Netflix’s new Kristen Bell-led comedy, the streamer announced Thursday.
“The O.C.” star will play Noah, a charming rabbi whose stable life gets shaken up when he meets a brutally honest and provocative Joanne, totally upending his safe life plan. Bell is set to star as Joanne in the series, “an irreverent, outspoken, agnostic woman” who pursues a relationship with Noah.
Brody’s casting comes almost two months after news that the streamer greenlit the untitled project.
The logline is as follows: “A comedy centered on the unlikely relationship between an irreverent, outspoken, agnostic woman and an unconventional rabbi.”
