Daybreak - Matthew Broderick to Star in Netflix Series; Will Recur on The Conners & Better Things

Share on Reddit


Matthew Broderick joins the cast of dramedy Daybreak as Principal Burr.

The cheerful, upbeat principal of Glendale High, Burr knows the name of every kid in school and their favorite character to play in Overwatch. In a hashtag-filled world of #metoo and #blacklivesmatter and #timesup, Burr is genuinely trying to be part of the solution: a good guy, an advocate and ally for all. But let’s face it, kids can be monsters.

Based on the graphic novel by Brian Ralph, the subversive dark comedy Daybreak finds 17 year old high school outcast Josh searching for his missing girlfriend Sam in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. Joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12 year old Angelica and Josh's former high school bully Wesley, now turned pacifist samurai, Josh tries to stay alive amongst the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.

Episodes: 10
Co-Creator / Showrunner / Executive Producer: Aron Eli Coleite (Locke & Key, Star Trek: Discovery, Heroes)
Co-Creator / Director / Executive Producer: Brad Peyton (Frontier, Rampage, producing through ASAP Entertainment)
NW / EP: Jeff Fierson (Frontier, Rampage, producing through ASAP Entertainment)


Additionally, per Deadline, Broderick will also recur on FX's upcoming third season of Better Things as a counselor (details are being kept under wraps). He will also recur on ABC's The Conners as Peter, a love interest for Jackie first appearing in the Halloween episode.
