Jane Lynch (Glee) has joined the cast of Black Bear Pictures’ A.C.O.D. alongside Richard Jenkins and Adam Scott.
Stuart Zicherman directs the comedy from a script he wrote with Ben Karlin.
Lynch will play Dr. Judith, a down on her luck author and therapist who jumps at the chance to regain the spotlight when her former patient Carter (Scott) shows up seeking her advice.
Teddy Schwarzman is producing and fully financing the project through his Black Bear Pictures’ shingle.
Karlin and Tim Perell will also produce.
“We’re really excited to have Jane Lynch join the cast of A.C.O.D.,” said Schwarzman. “We look forward to watching her bring the exceptional character of ‘Dr. Judith’ to life.”
Black Bear’s slate also includes Broken City, All Is Lost, and King of Heists.
