Comedies are usually one bright spot among all the drama series that are airing on TV each new season. And this fall another comedy series is joining the ever-growing list of funny sitcoms to air on NBC. It’s called I Feel Bad. So let’s take a closer look at this upcoming comedy and what it’s all about.
Who’s in charge?
Let’s start with those in charge of materializing I Feel Bad. This new NBC comedy comes from the mid of Aseem Batra.

And the production studios behind this new sitcom are 3 Arts Entertainment, CannyLads Productions, Paper Kite Productions as well as Universal Television.
What’s this show about?
This new comedy (that is inspired by Orli Auslander’s book “I Feel Bad: All Day. Every Day. About Everything.“) tells the story of Emet and her perfectly imperfect family. She might be the matriarch of her household and a fearless boss to her Gameblast staff, but she isn’t by any means flawless. Because she won’t hesitate to pass off her kids as someone else’s when they are wreaking havoc in public. Or use her employees to better navigate her chaotic personal life. But that’s perfectly fine since we don’t have to be ideal to be happy.
Who’s playing who?

Sarayu Blue will star as Emet, who tries to be a good mom and wife and a competent boss to her video game startup employees, while still enjoying life as a modern-day woman. Her husband David will be played by Paul Adelstein. Similarly to his wife, he’s trying to juggle his job at a major airline with learning to be an understanding husband and father to his family.
In addition to these two actors, I Feel Bad will also star Zach Cherry, James Buckley, and Johnny Pemberton as Emet’s employees Norman, Chewy, and Griff respectively. Madhur Jaffrey as Emet’s mom Maya. And also Aisling Bea as Simone and Brian George as Gabriel among others.
