Eric Petersen to Star in New Series KEVIN CAN F**K HIMSELF

Eric Petersen has been cast in the new dark comedy series Kevin Can F**k Himself. The Broadway star will play the title role of Kevin, opposite previously announced lead Annie Murphy, who will play the woman we all thought we knew: the sitcom wife.

Kevin Can F**k Himself looks to break television convention and ask what the world looks like through her eyes of the notoriously maligned sitcom leading-lady. Alternating between single-camera realism and multi-camera comedy, the formats will inform one another as we imagine what happens when the sitcom wife, Allison, escapes her confines and takes the lead in her own life. Kevin Can F***k Himself will consist of eight, hour-long episodes.

Mary Hollis Inboden (The Real O'Neals) and Alex Bonifer (Superstore) have joined the cast as well. Inboden will play Patty, Kevin and Allison's neighbor, while Bonifer plays Neil, Kevin's best friend and Patty's brother.

Kevin Can F**k Himself was developed as part of AMC’s "scripts-to-series" model, which opens writers’ rooms to develop potential series that, in success, move straight-to-series. AMC Studios Content Distribution will manage worldwide sales Kevin Can F***k Himself.

Kevin Can F**k Himself is created and executive produced by Valerie Armstrong (Lodge 49, SEAL Team) and executive producers Rashida Jones and Will McCormack through Le Train Train (Claws, A to Z). Craig DiGregorio (Shrill, Workaholics) serves as showrunner and executive producer.
