Jay Baruchel is on the prowl.
EW has confirmed that FXX has ordered 10 episodes of Baruchel’s new half-hour comedy Man Seeking Woman. Based on Simon Rich’s book of short stories The Last Girlfriend on Earth, the show will follow Josh Greenberg (Baruchel) on his quest for love after being dumped by his longtime girlfriend. Written by Rich, the show will also star series regulars Eric Andre, Britt Lower, and Maya Erskine.
“Simon Rich has delivered a wholly original, hilarious and fantastical view of single life that features an incredible performance from Jay Baruchel,” FX President of Original Programming Nick Grad said in a press release. “We feel this is the perfect fit for FXX and are thrilled to pick up the show.”
Man Seeking Woman is set to premiere on FXX in 2015.
