"Still Up follows the exploits of Lisa (Thomas), an impulsive and free-spirited aspiring illustrator whose questions over her daughter’s future start keeping her up at night, and the socially anxious yet gifted journalist Danny, played by Roberts," according to the logline.

"The pair have no secrets, except their feelings for each other, and while the world sleeps they spend their long nights talking despite never meeting."

Thomas is best known to U.S. audiences for playing Dr. Claire Browne on The Good Doctor.

The star exited the series at the end of its fourth season but returned for a handful of guest appearances the following season.

At the time, it was reported the star was looking to work in some different roles.

The company cited that it has considerably grown its slate of originals since that figure was revealed.
