The Dublin-born actress will appear alongside Arrested Development’s Will Arnett in Netflix’s new comedy series Flaked.

Set in the sunny LA suburb of Venice, Flaked will tell the story of Chip – a recovering addict who tries to rebuild his life as a furniture restorer.

However, things get complicated when he becomes entangled in a love triangle with a waitress called London, played by Kearney.

Kearney attended St Andrew’s College in Dublin and got her big acting break playing Jess Park in ITV drama Primeval.

Last year she worked with Kevin Bacon on the Fox series The Following.

The latest addition to Netflix’s empire comes after the successes of House of Cards, Orange is The New Black and Making A Murderer. 

All eight episodes of Flaked will be available on Netflix from Friday, March 11.
