“Little Miss Sunshine” directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris have been tapped to direct multiple episodes of FX on Hulu’s nine-episode series “Fleishman Is in Trouble”.

The story is based on Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s debut novel about recently separated fortysomething Toby Fleishman who dives into the world of app-based dating with the success he never had briefly dating in his youth and marrying at the tail end of medical school.

But just at the start of his first summer of sexual freedom, his ex-wife disappears, leaving him with the kids and no hint of where she is or whether she plans to return.

Brodesser-Akner serves as the writer and executive producer alongside Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Susannah Grant.
