TV veteran Don Johnson, "Harry Potter" franchise regular Rupert Grint, and British funnyman Nick Frost are all set to team on the six-part comedy series "Sick Note" for Sky Atlantic.

Created and written by Nat Saunders ("Trollied") and James Serafinowicz ("The Mark Steel Lectures"), Grint plays a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job under the thumb of his irrepressible boss (Johnson). When diagnosed with cancer, everyone starts to treat him better.

Then he finds out he was misdiagnosed by an incompetent oncologist (Frost), but decides to keep the new information to himself. That lie spirals out of control.

Jo Sargent will executive produce. Filming is now underway and an early 2017 airdate is planned.
