Schneider appeared in season three of HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones and is best known for his role as Jeremy Santos on Comedy Central’s Broad City. He also played Ty Wyland in FX’s You’re The Worst and portrayed Ben in ABC fantasy comedy Imaginary Mary.

St. Denis Medical stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, David Alan Grier and Allison Tolman, and comes from Superstore and American Auto duo of Justin Spitzer and Eric Ledgin.

The mockumentary series is centered in an underfunded, understaffed Oregon hospital where the dedicated doctors and nurses try their best to treat patients while maintaining their own sanity.

Josh Lawson, Mekki Leeper and Kahyun Kim also star.

Ledgin executive produces, as does Spitzer under his Universal TV-based production banner Spitzer Holding Company. Simon Heuer, Head of TV Development at Spitzer Holding Company, also executive produces. Universal Television is the studio.

The show, which was handed a series order last year, will launch in the fall before Night Court in an hour-long comedy block on Tuesday nights.

Schneider is repped by 3 Arts and Ginsburg Daniels Kallis.
