“How to Train Your Dragon 2” star Jay Baruchel is heading for FXX in 2015. The network has ordered 10 episodes of “Man Seeking Woman,” based on the book “The Last Girlfriend on Earth,” by former “Saturday Night Live” writer Simon Rich.
The series follows Josh Greenberg (Baruchel), “a naive romantic on a desperate quest for love.” He will be joined by Eric Andre (“The Eric Andre Show”), Britt Lower (“Unforgettable”) and Maya Erskine (“Betas”).
“Simon Rich has delivered a wholly original, hilarious and fantastical view of single life that features an incredible performance from Jay Baruchel,” one of FX’s Presidents of Original Programming Nick Grad says in a release. “We feel this is the perfect fit for FXX and are thrilled to pick up the show.”
