Over six years since the final season of Scrubs aired on ABC, EW can confirm star Zach Braff is returning to the network with what could turn into a new regular series, Start Up.

ABC has ordered the single-camera program as a put pilot (the network will air the project as a special, pick it up to series, or pay a fee if it declines to release it). 

Deadline first reported Tuesday morning that Start Up, written by former Scrubs co-executive producer Matt Tarses, is based on Alex Blumberg’s podcast of the same name. Braff stars as a man in his mid-30s who, with a wife and two kids, quits his job to start his own business.

In addition to toplining the potential series, Braff will also direct the pilot and executive-produce alongside Tarses, Blumberg, John Davis, John Fox, Chris Giliberti, and Matt Lieber.

A three-time Golden Globe nominee, Braff starred on Scrubs — seven seasons of which aired on NBC before moving to ABC for seasons 8 and 9 – from 2001 to 2010. He also starred in and directed films including 2004’s Garden State opposite Natalie Portman and the 2014 dramedy Wish I Was Here, which co-starred Kate Hudson.
