Fans of Nick Frost rejoice: the Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz/The World’s End actor has joined Fox’s Sober Companion, along with actor Justin Long. Here’s the show’s synopsis, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

Sober Companion centers on 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’s character is described as intelligent, driven and addicted. So drunk that he does a face-plant 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.

Though they aren’t saying if the show will be picked up, the article goes on to mention that they’re filming it with “an eye toward series production.” Does this seem like a show you’d be interested in seeing? Tell us in the comments below.

Here’s another photo of Mr. Frost, just because it’s Friday, and it’s his birthday!
