Martin Freeman is set to star in the upcoming Sky sitcom "Breeders".
The 47-year-old actor - who previously played Tim Canterbury in the award-winning sitcom "The Office" - will star alongside Daisy Haggard in the ten-part series, which is set for release in 2020.
Martin - whose new show has also been picked up by FX in the US - explained: "I'm excited to be making "Breeders" with a team that can make me laugh while we look at some of the less-discussed truths and challenges of being a parent. I really love this project and am delighted to be working with FX and Sky."
Martin will play the role of a "caring father discovering he's not quite the man he thought he was", while Daisy will play his on-screen wife.
Jon Mountague, Sky's head of comedy, has also teased the new series, which is being written by Simon Blackwell and Chris Addison.
Jon said: "Imagine a parent gazing lovingly into the eyes of their newborn - that's how proud we at Sky are with "Breeders". Brilliant scripts which see parenting through such an authentic and hilarious lens.
"Martin, Chris and Simon are an unstoppable comic force, but I can't vouch for them as parents. Together they're bringing the kind of premium quality comedy our customers have come to expect. We can't wait to show the world our new baby."
Meanwhile, Simon - who is currently writing "Back" on Channel 4 - has admitted he can barely contain his excitement.
He shared: "I am very excited about making "Breeders", to the point of being told to go to bed and stop showing off."
