Judd Hirsch is cooking up — actually, make that baking up — something big at CBS.
The network has ordered 13 episodes of Superior Donuts, which stars the two-time Emmy winner as the thick-skinned owner of a small donut shop in a rapidly gentrifying Chicago neighborhood, TVLine has learned.
The half-hour, multi-camera comedy also focuses heavily on Hirsch’s “enterprising young employee,” played by The Eric Andre Show‘s Jermaine Fowler, who also serves as an executive producer.
Additional stars include David Koechner (The Goldbergs), Maz Jobrani (Better Off Ted), Anna Baryshnikov (The Mysteries of Laura), Darien Sills-Evans (Treme), Rell Battle (Key and Peele) and Katey Sagal (Married With Children).
Based on the play by Tracy Letts, Superior Donuts premieres midseason on CBS. Will you be tuning in? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.
