From “Please Like Me” creator, writer and star Josh Thomas comes half-hour comedy “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay”, produced by Avalon Television and Freeform.
The series introduces Nicholas (Josh Thomas), a neurotic twenty-something visiting his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum (Kayla Cromer). He hasn’t been particularly present in his siblings’ lives, but when their dad reveals that he is terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realisation that Nicholas is the one who will have to rise to the occasion, move in, and hold it all together.
In an era of divisiveness and a seemingly never-ending negative news cycle, the series provides a breath of fresh air — a reason to laugh and connect with funny, well-intentioned characters trying to find happiness in the middle of difficult times.
Comedy legends, Richard Kind (The Big Knife, Inside Out) and Maria Bamford (Lady Dynamite, Big Mouth) join the cast as guest stars in season 2.
The release of season two has coincided with Autism Awareness Month. Josh Thomas disclosed his own autism diagnosis in an inspiring profile piece published by The New Yorker. Additionally, Kayla Cromer appeared on The Today Show with Hoda & Jenna to talk about growing up with Autism and her journey to become a successful actress.
The series recieved Best Cable Series Nominee from The Hollywood Critics Association Awards & was nominated as the Best TV of 2021 - by The Hollywood Reporter.
