The O.C. alum Adam Brody is set to star alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan and Claire Danes in FX 's Fleishman is in Trouble , a limited series adaptation of Taffy Brodesser-Akner's bestselling debut novel of the same name, which will stream on Hulu. Maxim Jasper Swinton ( Halston ) and Meara Mahoney Gross (Don't Look Up ) will also be featured in the series.
Created by Brodesser-Akner, the story is centered on recently separated forty-something Toby Fleishman (Eisenberg) who dives into the brave new world of app-based dating with the kind of success he never had dating in his youth, before he got married at the tail-end of medical school. But just at the start of his first summer of sexual freedom, his ex-wife, Rachel (Danes), disappears, leaving him with the kids and no hint of where she is or whether she plans to return. As he balances parenting, the return of old friends, a promotion at the hospital that is a long time coming, and all the eligible women that Manhattan has to offer, he realizes that he'll never be able to figure out what happened to Rachel until he can take a more honest look at what happened to their marriage in the first place.
Brody plays Seth, an old friend of Toby's (Eisenberg). Swinton and Gross play the Fleishman's children Solly and Hanna, respectively. Caplan plays Libby, the show's narrator and Toby and Seth's friend.
