Rupert Grint, who is now a household name for playing one of the leads in Harry Potter, Don Johnson and Nick Frost will star in a new comedy series called Sick Note.

Set to air on Sky Atlantic in early 2017, the six-part show is “about how desperate a person’s actions can become when a lie starts to spiral out of control”, reported Digital Spy.

Produced by British production company King Bert, which was founded by producer Jo Sargent (Absolutely Fabulous) and comedy writers and performers David Walliams and Miranda Hart, the show is created and written by Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz. Matt Lipsey will direct the show.

The series follows Daniel Glass (Grint), “a compulsive liar, who’s stuck in a failing relationship and a dead end job, where he is under the thumb of his irrepressible boss Kenny West (Don Johnson),” according to a plot description.
