A collaboration between Scrubs alum Zach Braff is set to air on ABC about the wonderful world of start-ups.
Based on the podcast of the same name Start-Up will follow Braff’s character Alex Schuman, a journalist and family man who decides too go out on a limb and launch a Start-Up. The show will follow all the ups and downs that go with it.
2016 was quite the year for podcasts and TV shows are snapping up adaptations, with Lore and Serial both being picked up by networks. Although the success of them remains to be seen, a podcast adaptation will most likely already have a built in audience and are both different enough that they probably won’t get the same criticism as a book adaptation.
Braff is best known for his work on comedy series Scrubs as J.D the day-dreaming doctor and for his directing work on films like Garden State.
