Nanjiani is the third person to join the show following Adam Scott and Sanaa Lathan. Jordan Peele is executive producing the show alongside ‘Dark Phoenix’ director Simon Kinberg, Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Carol Serling, Rick Berg and Greg Yaitanes.
The show will premiere on CBS All Access sometime next year.
