Zach BraffABC has picked up a new sitcom starring (and written, directed and produced by) Zach Braff. It'll be his first TV series since "Scrubs" wrapped in 2010.

Inspired by the podcast "StartUp," the comedy will get a new name so as not to compete with the Crackle series of the same name, per Deadline. It stars Braff as Alex Schuman, a radio journalist and family man who quits his job and starts his own company. Headaches, naturally, ensue.

The supporting cast includes "Sopranos" alum Michael Imperioli, Tiya Sircar ("The Internship," "The Good Place"), Hillary Anne Matthews, Elisha Henig and Audyssie James.

Braff also directed the pilot and is executive producing the series with Matt Tarses (who co-wrote the pilot).

The actor tweeted out that he's "thrilled" to be back on ABC and a pic of him working hard with "his life partner" Tarses.
