"I love working with Netflix. They are spearheading comedy across the world right now. Every major comic I love watching is innovating on their platform. I couldn't be more excited to have a two special deal and I'm working hard on getting the show ready.

"Looking forward to shooting it in a mainstream room with comedy history to it. Abroad Understanding took me to an audience across the world, I can't wait to see where this one takes me," the actor said in a statement.
