Lena Dunham’s Too Much is soon kicking off production, and its cast will be as star-studded as it gets. Netflix announced the list of supporting players set to be featured in this comedy, which includes the likes of Richard E. Grant, Stephen Fry, and Adele Exarchopoulos.

Written and directed by the Girls creator Lena Dunham, Too Much will center on a mid-30s New York workaholic Jessica (Megan Stalter), who decides to make a drastic change while reeling from a broken relationship that she thought would last forever.

She decides to take a job in London and start anew, but things get super-complicated when she meets Felix (Will Sharpe) and ends up developing a strong connection that’s impossible to ignore.

In addition to Stalter and Sharpe in the lead roles, Emily Ratajkowski (Gone Girl) previously joined this series as Felix’s ex-girlfriend Polly. She’ll now be joined by several notable supporting players, starting with Adele Exarchopoulos (Passages), Richard E. Grant (Saltburn), and Stephen Fry (The Dropout) 

The supporting cast of this project will also include Adwoa Aboah (Top Boy), Janicza Bravo (Sharp Stick), Michael Zegen (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Prasanna Puwanarajah (The Crown), Rhea Perlman (Cheers), and Rita Wilson (Sleepless in Seattle), among others.

Dunham co-created Too Much alongside her husband, Luis Felber, and Netflix has given it a 10-episode order.
