The comedy stars starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin recently won two Golden Globe Awards, one for best comedy series and the other for Douglas in the best actor in a comedy series category. Arkin was also nominated in the supporting actor category.
Season 2 will consist of eight half-hour episodes and is scheduled to begin production later this month in Los Angeles. Douglas and Arkin will return as series regulars along with Sarah Baker and Nancy Travis.
The show follows actor and acting coach Sandy Kominsky (Douglas) and his agent Norman Newlander (Arkin), two friends trying to navigate their later years in Los Angeles, a city that values youth and beauty.
Chuck Lorre created the series and serves as executive producer along with Al Higgins and Douglas. Chuck Lorre Productions produces in association with Warner Bros. Television.
