Showtime Renews Carrey-Led “Kidding”

Promos Carrey In Kidding Del Toro In Escape

Showtime has ordered a second season of its comedy series “Kidding” starring Jim Carrey in his first series regular role in more than two decades.

Ordered for ten episodes next season, Dave Holstein (“Weeds”) created the show which centers on Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles (Carrey), an icon of children’s television and a beacon of kindness. But when this beloved personality’s family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairytale, fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope.

Frank Langella, Catherine Keener, Judy Greer, Justin Kirk, Tara Lipinski, Cole Allen and Juliet Morris co-star. The show’s first season finale airs November 11th.
