Chris O’Dowd signs up to Apple+ comedy

Taking lead role in The Big Door Prize

Chris O’Dowd is to star in The Big Door Prize, a new Apple comedy about a machine that can reveal your true life potential.

The IT Crowd star will play ‘a good-natured teacher and family man whose deeply average life has followed a safe and predictable path, until the mystifying machine forces him to question his own happiness’, Hollywood website Variety has revealed.

The ten-episode series is based on the M.O. Walsh novel of the same name, and is being adapted for the screen by Schitt’s Creek  executive producer David West Read.

O’Dowd  is known to US audiences for his starring role in Get Shorty on Epix, pictured, and the Bridesmaids movie, among other roles.
