MATTHEW BRODERICK JOINS CAST OF NETFLIX HIGH SCHOOL APOCALYPSE DRAMEDY DAYBREAK

19/10/2018

We kindly ask that you link to www.netflix.com/daybreak in your coverage

Matthew Broderick joins the cast of dramedy Daybreak as Principal Burr.

The cheerful, upbeat principal of Glendale High, Burr knows the name of every kid in school and their favorite character to play in Overwatch. In a hashtag-filled world of #metoo and #blacklivesmatter and #timesup, Burr is genuinely trying to be part of the solution: a good guy, an advocate and ally for all. But let's face it, kids can be monsters.

Based on the graphic novel by Brian Ralph, the subversive dark comedy Daybreak finds 17 year old high school outcast Josh searching for his missing girlfriend Sam in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. Joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12 year old Angelica and Joshs former high school bully Wesley, now turned pacifist samurai, Josh tries to stay alive amongst the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.

Pierrepont Finch, in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Additional theater credits include Night Must Fall and Taller Than a Dwarf.

On screen, Broderick starred in the critically acclaimed film You Can Count on Me opposite Laura Linney. He also earned considerable acclaim starring opposite Reese Witherspoon in the Independent Spirit Award winning political satire Election, directed by Alexander Payne.
