Brit comic Nick Frost (“Hot Fuzz”, “Shaun of the Dead”) will star in new FOX sitcom “Sober Companion”, according to THR.

Frost joins Justin Long on the single-camera comedy.

It tells of a “charming but self-destructive lawyer Robert (Frost) who finds his world turned upside down when a court-appointed, and highly unconventional, sober companion Jeremy (Justin Long) takes control of his life.”

Frost, who doesn’t touch alcohol in real life, plays a character “described as intelligent, driven and an addict. So drunk that he does a faceplant in court, he is assigned a sober companion for the next 90 days, and must either stay away from everything he deems to be fun, or lose his job and probably his liberty.”

David S.Rosenthal and Jennie Snyder Urman will pen the script and executive produce.
