Written by Jefferies and Martin, Jefferies stars the veteran comedian as a fictionalized version of himself – a comedian with a unique and often controversial take on modern life, relationships and co-parenting with his best friend (Brandt).

Brandt’s Cleo is Jim’s best friend and mother of his child.
