The series, from Grace and Frankie executive producer Billy Finnegan, has been likened to About a Boy in tone as it follows the life of the titular Richard, a famous author living off the success of his children’s book series, “Mr. Mouse.” The only problem is, Lovely is not very fond of children, an aspect of his personality he is forced to confront when Mr. Mouse actually appears in his life.

Alexander, who was last seen in a couple of episodes of CBS’ Young Sheldon and Fox’s The Orville, has signed on to voice Mr. Mouse, the animated representation of the titular author’s book series. He joins a cast that already includes Thomas Lennon (Lethal Weapon) as Lovely and Asif Ali (Wrecked) as the author’s agent, as well as Wendie Malick (The Ranch), Nicole Sun (I Feel Bad), Nicole Richie (Great News), Mason Shneiderman (Happyish), Kai Cech and Thom Nemer.
