The single-camera pilot is described as "a comedic exploration of modern romance in reverse, break-up first. It is set at an agency that specializes in breaking-up romantic relationships on behalf of those who are willing to pay to not be around when it happens and centers on Alex (Rappaport) who, after he's dumped by a representative of the agency, vows to find out what it is, specifically, that's wrong with him - by taking a job at the company."

Kind will play Ken Bell, Alex's father.

Kind appeared on Broadway this year in Roundabout's The Big Knife, for which he received a Tony Award nomination and won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play. His previous Broadway credits include The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Sly Fox, Funny Girl, The Producers and The Tale Of The Allergist's Wife.

Kind's upcoming film projects include The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, Chu and Blossom, Obvious Child, Ride and All Stars. He was recently seen on the big screen in the Oscar-winning film Argo, as well as Hereafter. Recent TV appearances include Childrens Hospital, Golden Boy, Luck and Burn Notice, among others.
