Amazon continues to bet big on original programming, and it looks like their latest wager is Jay Chandrasekhar. Splitsider reports the comedian is writing, directing and starring in a new pilot for Amazon called Really.

The single-camera comedy will center on Chandrasekhar as Jed, a Chicago neurologist, with Scrubs’ Sarah Chalke playing his lawyer wife Lori. Additional roles will be played by Selma Blair, Luka Jones, Travis Schuldt, Lindsay Sloane, Hayes MacArthur and Collette Wolfe.

Chandrasekhar is probably best known as a member of Broken Lizard, the comedy troupe behind Super Troopers and Beer Fest, but the actor has also directed episodes of Arrested Development and Community, as well as the 2005 remake of Dukes of Hazzard.
