LOS ANGELES: Actor Matthew Broderick has come aboard the cast of Netflix's dramedy "Daybreak".

The 56-year-old actor will play the role of Burr, the cheerful and upbeat principal of Glendale High, the streaming giant said in a press release.

The series is based on the graphic novel by Brian Ralph and follows 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 Josh's 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, read the official synopsis.

The 10-episode show has been co-created by Aron Eli Coleite and Brad Peyton.

The duo will also executive produce the show.

It will be directed by Peyton while Coleite will serve as the showrunner.
