Sandy Kominsky’s life didn’t turn out the way he’d planned. His dream of having a successful acting career was slowly and inexorably replaced with the reality of being a mere acting coach. As played by Michael Douglas, Sandy is now dealing with the even harsher reality of being an old man in a youth-obsessed culture. Clinging to his best friend and long-time agent Norman Newlander (Alan Arkin), the two men are forced to confront loneliness, health issues, the loss of loved ones, financial calamity, grown-up children with grown-up problems, and estrangement from a world that is undergoing constant and rapid change. The Kominsky Method shifts quickly from laughter to tears, and back again to laughter. It is a story of friendship. A story of life.
“The Kominsky Method is a smart, engaging comedy with a strong ensemble cast, outstanding acting and brilliant writing,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin make a fantastic team. The chemistry the two share, makes this series a delight to watch. If you’re a fan of great television, this is a series you don’t want to miss.”
The first season of The Kominsky Method is written by Chuck Lorre, Al Higgins (Mike & Molly), and David Javerbaum (The Late, Late Show with James Corden). The Kominsky Method is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series has been renewed for a second season on Netflix and has new cast additions including Jane Seymour, Kathleen Turner and Paul Reiser.
