Will Arnett‘s Netflix comedy is adding to its cast.
David Sullivan (New Girl) has joined Flaked as a series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Set in the insular world of Venice, Calif., Flaked follows the seriocomic story of celebrated longtime resident Chip (Arnett), who falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination. Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullshit that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel. Chip is a man doing his honest best to stay one step ahead of his own lies.
Sullivan will play Chip’s best friend, Dennis, a man used to playing second fiddle to his uber-popular pal. A “sober sommelier,” Dennis is six years sober but still creates wine lists for restaurants.
Flaked‘s eight-episode first season will bow exclusively across all Netflix territories in 2016.
Arnett co-created the series with Mark Chappell (The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret). The duo will write and exec produce the series, which is produced by Electus and Principato-Young. Electus founder Ben Silverman, manager-producer Peter Principato and Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz also will executive produce.
Sullivan’s credits also include Argo and NCIS: LA. He will next be seen in the Jessica Alba horror film The Veil and ABC’s anthology drama Wicked City. He is repped by Principato-Young Entertainment and Ginsburg Daniels.
