Brooklyn Nine-Nine alum Melissa Fumero is about to serve some video rental realness in the upcoming Netflix comedy series Blockbuster from creator Vanessa Ramos (Superstore, Brooklyn Nine-Nine).
Fumero will star alongside Randall Park in the 10-episode single-cam workplace comedy set in the last remaining Blockbuster video store. She will play Eliza, a dedicated mother whose marriage to her high school sweetheart is on the rocks. She left Harvard after one semester to start a family and now David works at Blockbuster alongside Timmy (Park) as his trusty number two…and maybe more.
Blockbuster is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group. David Caspe (Happy Endings, Black Monday) and Jackie Clarke (Superstore, Happy Endings) also serving as writers/executive producers. John Davis and John Fox also executive produce for Davis Entertainment (Jungle Cruise).
