Following their collaboration on “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” actor Jim Carrey and director Michel Gondry will re-team for the new Showtime half-hour comedy series “Kidding”.
Marking Carrey’s first regular television role since “In Living Color” in the 1990s, Carrey will play Jeff, an icon of children’s television who also anchors the multimillion dollar Mr. Pickles branding empire.
When his family begins to implode, the crisis advances faster than his means to cope. Showtime has ordered a ten-episode first season with Gondry helming the pilot. Dave Holstein (“Weeds”) will serve as showrunner while Carrell and Gondry will executive produce.
