Nancy Travis, Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are set to star in Netflix’s new series, The Kominsky Method.
The single-camera comedy, created by Chuck Lorre, follows Sandy (Douglas), a failed actor-turned-acting-coach, whose agent, Norman (Arkin), is also his long-suffering friend. Travis plays Lisa, a 50-something acting student who isn’t the usual course attendee. Recently divorced, and with an 18-year-old son at home, she gets to know Sandy during their lessons, and a late-in-life romance begins to blossom.
Travis will be recognised by comedy fans from her long-running stint on Last Man Standing and David E Kelley’s Mrs. Mercedes, in which she will soon play a recurring role for its second season. Douglas, meanwhile, joined the show in the spring, when it was in development.
The show is produced by Warner Bros. TV and the studio-based Chuck Lorre Productions, with Lorre and Douglas exec-producing. Netflix has ordered 10 episodes for the show’s first season.
