Jesse Eisenberg will join Lizzy Caplan in the cast of the FX series Fleishman Is in Trouble, inspired by Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s beste seller. The minsierie revolves around the recently separated 40-year-old Toby Fleishman diving into the new world of app-based dating with a level of success he’s never had before getting married. At the same time, his ex-wife, Rachel, goes missing and leaves him with the children, with no indication of where he is or whether he intends to return.
Jesse Eisenberg will play Toby Fleishman. Lizzy Caplan was cast earlier this week to play Libby, the show’s narrator and friend of Toby’s with whom the man reconnects after their divorce.
Writer Taffy Brodesser-Akner will make her debut as a screenwriter on the miniseries and will executive produce alongside Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Susannah Grant, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Dayton and Faris will direct the show.
