Netflix’s new limited drama series Florida Man will star Edgar Ramírez from the Netflix original family film Yes Day. Deadline reported about the series’ development and additional casting announcements back in August 2021.

Netflix previously announced Florida Man was developed by creator Donald Todd, as well as Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan’s Aggregate Films. The series is part of Aggregate’s first-look deal with the streamer. Aggregate Films is also responsible for the wildly successful Netflix original Ozark. With this team involved, it is bound to be another great feature for Netflix viewers.

The limited series will have hour-long episodes and reunite Ramírez with Miguel Arteta, director of Yes Day. Arteta will direct the pilot and second episode as well as executive produce. Also directing will be Julian Farino, Haifaa Al Mansour, and Kevin Bray.
