    Not Dead Yet will soon be alive and well on ABC. 

    The comedy, created by David Windsor and Casey Johnson (This Is UsThe Real O'Neals) stars Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) as Nell Serrano, "a broke and newly single self-described disaster, working to restart the life and career she left behind five years ago. When she lands the only job she can find – writing obituaries – Nell starts getting life advice from an unlikely source." 

    Adapted from Alexandra Potter's book Confessions of a 40-Something F**k Up, the half-hour comedy also stars Hannah Simone (New Girl), Lauren Ash (Superstore), Rick Glassman (As We See It), Joshua Banday (Upload), and Angela Gibbs (HacksBlack Jesus). 

    Not Dead Yet marks Rodriguez's first leading role in a broadcast TV series since Jane the Virgin, which ran for five seasons and earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. 

    Not Dead Yet premieres on ABC February 8, 2023. It will also be available to stream on Hulu.
