Consisting of 10 episodes, the comedy will follow the effect of a mystifying machine on a small Louisiana town when it one day appears in the grocery store – promising to reveal the true potential of every inhabitant.
O’Dowd, who has carved out a successful career in Hollywood since the aforementioned cult hit ended eight years ago, is on board as Dusty.
This character is described as “a good-humored teacher and father whose deeply average life has followed a safe and predictable path”.
What wonders will the machine share with him?

“I have my fingers crossed,” he added. “But I also think you need to give people a little time for you to miss. So, I’m taking a little time and we’ll see what happens in the next couple of years, but my fingers are crossed.”
