Chuck Lorre’s Newest Netflix Collaboration
Chuck Lorre, the creator of The Big Bang Theory and Two And A Half Men is now working on a few more shows. One of his most recent developments is a Netflix series, which is called The Kominsky Method.
The new Netflix series will star Oscar winners, Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. The bulk of the show will focus on Douglas’ character, Sandy Kominsky, who is an actor no longer in the limelight, so he focuses on teaching.
Arkin, his friend, is Norman, the actor’s agent on the show.
“And They Said Yes…”
Fox News reports:
“I wrote a script, and we sent it to them, and they said yes,” Lorre told The Hollywood Reporter of how the project came together. “I’m so excited to work with people that I’ve admired for 45-50 years. ‘Streets of San Francisco’ is the first time I saw Michael. Alan Arkin in ‘The Russians are Coming,’ ‘The In-Laws’ … I didn’t expect them both to sign on…”
“Douglas plays a guy named Sandy Kominsky who is a Hollywood acting coach with a little class in Hollywood at one of those black box classrooms and a lot of young students. He had a brief flirtation with fame a long, long time ago, but those days are gone.”
Lorre Also Works On Kathy Bates Project
This is the second deal Chuck Lorre has with Netflix. The first, which stars Kathy Bates, is called Disjointed.
“Lorre and former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum created, write and exec producer the sitcom that follows Ruth (Bates), a lifelong advocate for legalization, as she finally lives her dream as the owner of an Los Angeles cannabis dispensary. Joining her at Ruth’s Alternative Caring are three charismatic “budtenders” (Dougie Baldwin, Elizabeth Ho, and Elizabeth Alderfer), her entrepreneurial twentysomething son (Aaron Moten) and a very troubled security guard who served in Afghanistan (Tone Bell).”
