TORONTO - Jay Baruchel is headed back to the small screen in a comedy about a hopeless romantic navigating the modern dating world.

FXX has reportedly ordered 10 episodes of "Man Seeking Woman," which will begin airing in 2015.

According to Variety, the series is based on "The Last Girlfriend on Earth," a book of short stories by "Saturday Night Live" writer Simon Rich.

Rich wrote the pilot with Jonathan Krisel and will executive-produce alongside heavyweight Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer.

Montreal-based Baruchel stars as Josh Greenberg, a "naive romantic on a desperate quest for love."

"Man Seeking Woman" marks a return to television for Baruchel, who starred in Judd Apatow's 2001 cult hit series "Undeclared."

The "How To Train Your Dragon" star tweeted "WOOHOO!" with a link to the Variety story about the series being picked up by FXX.

A spokesperson for Rogers Media, which runs FX Canada, said Canadian broadcast details are yet to be announced.
