The Hollywood Reporter reports that Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint will be playing a superhero in a new CBS superhero comedy series called Super Clyde. It will be Grint's network series regular debut.
The show was created by Greg Garcia who created My Name is Earl and Raising Hope. Grint will star in the series as Clyde. Clyde is described as a "a meek, unassuming fast-food worker who decides to become a super hero."
Here is an official synopsis for the show:
"An avid comic book reader considers himself a borderline agoraphobic with mild to severe anxiety issues who wishes he were a super hero himself. When he inherits a $100,000 a month inheritance from his long-dead eccentric Uncle Bill, he decides that the cash will be his secret super power and will use it only for good and reward the good-hearted."
Super Clyde is one of two pilots the network ordered from Garcia who will write and executive produce the show as part of his deal with CBS Television Studios. Mike Fresco will direct the pilot.
