Set against the world of a major drug cartel bust, No Activity follows two low-level cops who've spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven't really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space, considering they've only just met.
The show, which pokes fun at a high-stakes sting operation, is based on the Australian series of the same name, which was co-created and executive produced by Trent O'Donnell, who will direct all episodes of the CBS All Access original comedy, and Patrick Brammall, who will reprise his role as one of the wise-cracking cops.
In addition to Brammall, the cast of No Activity includes seasoned comedian Tim Meadows, along with a laundry list of amazing guest stars like:
- Mark Berry
- Arturo Castro
- Mackenzie Davis
- Bridget Everett
- Will Ferrell
- Darren Gilshenan
- Travis Guba
- Jake Johnson
- Sunita Mani
- Jason Mantzoukas
- Adrian Martinez
- Jesse Plemons
- Fred Pohl
- Alex Rodriguez
- Amy Sedaris
- J.K. Simmons
- Courtenay Taylor
- Michaela Watkins

"With No Activity as CBS All Access' first original comedy, we're delivering our subscribers a new, premium series that continues to push artistic boundaries in interesting ways," said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive.
He continued: "This is definitely not your average comedy; in addition to the all-star comedic cast, we have the incomparable creative team of Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Funny Or Die behind the series who are innovators in their field and will undoubtedly keep viewers laughing each week."
No Activity is the latest addition to CBS All Access' slate of original series, which currently includes Star Trek: Discovery and The Good Fight, and will be accompanied by previously announced upcoming mystery/thriller series $1 and drama series Strange Angel.
No Activity is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Funny Or Die and Gary Sanchez Productions, and is based on the Australian series produced by Jungle and broadcast by Stan.
The series is co-created and executive produced by Trent O’Donnell and Patrick Brammall, alongside executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jason Burrows and Joe Farrell.
