Nick Frost Finds A Sober Companion
In a new US comedy series with Justin Long

26 March 2014  |  Written by James White

Nick Frost and Justin Long

Following in the footsteps of Cornetto chums Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, Nick Frost has scored some welcome Stateside recognition with the lead in a new sitcom pilot. He's set to star alongside Justin Long in Sober Companion.

Frost will be Robert, a smart, ambitious lawyer who also battles a huge addiction problem. When it begins to affect his work and he passes out drunk in court, he's assigned a sober companion to help him deal with his issues.

Long is taking on that role, helping Frost's character stay away from all the things that threaten to get him in trouble lest he lose his job and potentially end up behind bars for his behaviour. We imagine, given that it's a sitcom, that things won't go completely smoothly.

No director has been announced yet, but David S. Rosenthal and Jennie Snyder Urman have written the script and would run any eventual show. So if you want more Frost time, keep your fingers crossed that this one makes it to series.
