Zach Braff (Scrubs) is back in an ABC series inspired by the podcast “StarUp” that explores what it’s like to get a business off the ground.
Braff stars as Alex Schulman, a husband, father and brilliant radio journalist “sick of telling happy stories,” who quits his job to start his own podcast company.
“I don’t want to cheer people up, I want to engage their minds,” he tells his co-workers before walking out of the office, Jerry Maguire style, in the trailer.
Braff stars, directs and executive produces, along with writer Matt Tarses (Scrubs), John Davis, John Fox and Davis Entertainment.
The series also stars Tiya Sircar, Hilary Anne Matthews, Michael Imperioli, Elisha Henig and Audyssie James.
