News   It's Only a Play Star Will Join Rob Lowe and Jenna Fischer in New NBC Comedy-Drama
 
Stage and screen stars Rob Lowe (“Parks and Recreation”), Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) and Megan Mullally (It's Only a Play) will be seen this fall in NBC's new one-hour comedy drama "You, Me and the End of the World."

Mathew Baynton (“Yonderland”) also stars in a cast that features Joel Fry, Paterson Joseph, Gaia Scodellaro, Pauline Quirke, Fabian McCallum and Kyle Soller.

"The news that a comet is on an unavoidable collision course with Earth sets in motion the most hilariously unexpected chain of events imaginable," according to NBC production notes. "Set against the backdrop of apocalyptic chaos… the story follows an eclectic group of seemingly unconnected characters around the world as their lives start to intersect in the most unexpected ways. When we say eclectic, we mean a rebellious priest, an unhinged white supremacist, a mild-mannered bank manager, a germ-phobic cyber-terrorist and an American five-star general. Some of these misfits are destined to make it to a bunker deep beneath the English suburbs of Slough and, as a result, will become the hugely unlikely (and totally unsuitable) future of mankind. Wouldn’t that be a disaster!"

Executive producers are Juliette Howell, Lynn Horsford, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Cameron Roach, Lizzie Gray and Andrew Conrad.

“You, Me and the End of the World” is a production of Working Title Television, Sky TV and Bigballs Films.
