Gabrus will play Ronan, Josh’s adult nephew renting Josh and Charlie’s backhouse. He’s 35 years old, going on 16, misguided yet street-smart, hopeful, and too lazy to be ambitious.

Alex Fernie is directing the pilot, which Kauffman co-wrote with Hannah K.S. Canter. Kauffman, Canter, Raphael and Scheer executive produce with Okay Goodnight’s Robbie Rowe Tollin. Jesse Schiller serves as a producer and Molly Arkin as a co-producer.

Gabrus can most recently be seen starring in Max comedic travelogue series 101 Places To Party Before You Die, alongside Adam Pally. His other television credits include FX’s What We Do In The Shadows, NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, ABC’s Happy Endings, Comedy Central’s Workaholics, IFC’s Comedy Bang Bang and TVLand’s Younger. On the feature side, Gabrus appeared in Jay Roach’s Bombshell with Charlize Theron and Justin Simien’s Bad Hair, among others. He’s repped by Buchwald, Artists First and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
