Numb3rs star David Krumholtz is turning into a grandma for IFC’s Gigi’s Bucket List, an upcoming comedy about a woman named Gigi who’s suddenly rich after her husband dies.

“This character has been living inside me since birth,” Krumholtz said in a statement. “Friends have often accused me of acting like a grandma.”

In the show, the 76-year-old Gigi discovers her husband left behind a bank account filled with millions of dollars that she subsequently spends to give herself the kind of good time she wishes she’d had in her youth. Zach & Miri Make a Porno‘s Ricky Mabe will play her male nurse.

Gigi’s Bucket List will begin filming in June, and is set to debut on IFC in late 2015.
