Another cast member has been added to Bill Lawrence’s upcoming project with Apple TV+.
Alex Moffat, a frequent cast member on “Saturday Night Live,” has signed on to feature with Vince Vaughn in the forthcoming comedy “Bad Monkey,” according to Deadline.
Saturday Night Live’s Alex Moffat has joined Bill Lawrence’s Apple TV+ series Bad Monkey in a key recurring role opposite Vince Vaughn.
Vince Vaughn will feature in the series, which will follow “Andrew Yancy (played by Vaughn), a one-time detective relegated to restaurant inspector in Southern Florida.” Bill Lawrence, who is best known for “Scrubs” and “Ted Lasso,” is the show’s creator.
“Bad Monkey” tells the story of Andrew Yancy (played by Vaughn), a one-time detective demoted to restaurant inspector in Southern Florida. A severed arm found by a tourist out fishing pulls Yancy into the world of greed and corruption that decimates the land and environment in both Florida and the Bahamas. And yes, there’s a monkey.
Hailing from Warner Bros. Television, where Lawrence is under an overall deal, “Bad Monkey” is based on Carl Hiaasen’s 2013 novel of the same name, a New York Times Bestseller and enduring cult favorite. The New York Times called the book “a comedic marvel … beautifully constructed,” and “a rollicking misadventure in the colorful annals of greed and corruption in South Florida.”
“Bad Monkey” is written by Lawrence, who will executive produce through his Doozer Productions alongside Matt Tarses and Jeff Ingold. Liza Katzer will serve as co-executive producer.
The release date for “Bad Monkey” for Apple TV+ is currently unknown. When it happens, it will join a growing number of movies and TV series that are uploaded to the streaming service on a regular basis.
