Fisher is best known for directing, writing, and producing Sleeping with the Fishes that starred Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin).
Good Egg follows Jessica Nieves-Sanders (Martinez), who is a high school drama teacher in Queens and very much so desires to be a mother before she is 40 and is forced to look toward alternate ways of becoming a mother, after many failed IVF efforts. Just as Jessica is ready to give up, she meets Bridget, a young con-artist whom she feels would be able to help give her what she needs most. However, she becomes entangled in a criminal underground and is compelled to ponder how she ended up in such a bad situation.
Gordon, Jessica’s high school sweetheart and husband, will be played by Johnstone. Gordon is a meager desktop analyst with a heart of gold with dreams of having a huge family. He is also caught up in Bridget’s scheme.
Johnstone is currently filming the fourth season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel as Archie Clearly.
