“This is why you shouldn’t start a company as a 37-year-old dad”
Scrubs star Zach Braff is returning to television in a brand new comedy series on ABC.
The series is called Alex, Inc. and follows Braff’s character Alex Schuman, a radio journalist who has a Jerry Maguire type moment. He gets a bit of inspiration and quits his job to pursue starting up his own podcast company. He quickly realizes that he bit off more than he could chew but, with the support of his loving family, he learns that he can do anything!
