Netflix is all set to add yet another comedy to its roster soon, and this time, it's going to be a big one. A romantic comedy called Dash & Lily is in the works and will star Austin Abrams and Midori Francis and in fact, has a dream team behind-the-scenes to look forward to.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the eight-episode, half-hour series comes from Stranger Things producer 21 Laps and Nick Jonas' Image 32. It's based on the book Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist). Austin Abrams (Euphoria, This Is Us) and Midori Francis (Good Boys) will play the title roles.

Production on the series is underway in New York for a 2020 premiere. Joe Tracz (A Series of Unfortunate Events) — who's also working with 21 Laps founder Shawn Levy on a movie adaptation of musical Be More Chill — is adapting the book and will serve as showrunner.

"The most essential quality of 21 Laps shows and films is heart, and Dash & Lily has that quality in spades," said Levy. "Josh Barry and I are thrilled to be starting production with such an exceptional group of collaborators on and off-screen, from writer/showrunner Joe Tracz to our talented directors, incredible cast, and of course, our producing partner, Nick Jonas. This show is inspiring to us and promises to give audiences a uniquely romantic and entertaining New York City holiday adventure."

Dash & Lily will follow the whirlwind holiday romance between cynical Dash (Abrams) and optimistic Lily (Francis) as they trade dares, dreams and desires in a notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York City, finding they have more in common than they would have expected.
