In the half-hour comedy, a brilliant man (John Hawkes) is able to explain how and why a nuclear reactor works, but is clueless about the rest of life. After losing his job hosting a children's science show, he has to start over hosting a new show in the middle of nowhere where he encounters the supernatural world. As previously announced, Michael Cera will play his new boss at the studio.
Details on Kenner and Hawkins' roles were not released. If the show is picked up to series, Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) will be a series regular and Kenner (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) will be listed as a guest star.
