Dan signed a film and TV deal with Netflix nearly a year ago, which allows the four-time Emmy winner to star in, write, direct and produce a romantic comedy feature film. 

The deal took effect in July, and that’s when the actor and producer opened his own production company, called Not a Real Production Company, with publicist Meghan Zehmer.
