Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are heading to Netflix for Chuck Lorre’s comedy The Kominsky Method. Lorre will write the script for the 10-episode single-camera series, and is onboard as an executive producer. Deals are still getting finalized for the project from Warner Bros. Television.
According to the latest reports, Douglas will play Sandy Kominsky, a formerly popular actor who now teaches budding thespians. Arkin portrays Norman, Sandy’s longtime agent and friend.
This is the second Netflix series for Lorre, who has the Kathy Bates-led Disjointed comedy debuting August 25 on the streaming service.
