Based on Saturday Night Live writer Simon Rich’s book, The Last Girlfriend on Earth, the potential series is described as “a sweet and absurd look at the life-and-death stakes of dating.”
Baruchel will play Josh Greenberg, a naive romantic on a desperate quest for love. When his longtime girlfriend dumps him, Josh enters the dating scene, a nightmarish hellscape of untold horror.
The 29-year-old Rich — the second youngest writer ever hired by SNL — penned the script and will serve as an EP alongside his SNL boss Lorne Michaels.
Baruchel’s post-Undeclared career credits include the films Knocked Up, Tropic Thunder and last summer’s sleeper This Is the End. He next appears in the upcoming Robocop.
