Kidding - Jim Carrey Showtime Series - Directed by Michel Gondry

Recommended Posts

This could be excellent, I really hope it is. Carrey reteams with Michel Gondry for this comedy drama about a beloved TV personality whose life starts to come apart.

In Kidding, Carrey in his first series regular role in more than two decades plays Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him – who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality’s family – wife, two sons, sister and father – begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: A kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.

 

Ordered for 10 episodes, Kidding is executive produced by Carrey, Oscar winner Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Emmy nominee Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Jim Garavente (Bad Words), Raffi Adlan (The Green Hornet) and Michael Aguilar (I’m Dying Up Here). Kidding was created by Dave Holstein (Weeds, Raising Hope), who wrote the pilot and will serve as showrunner. Gondry will also direct the project.

Anyone seen this yet? Showtime have put the first episode up on YT for free.

 

We watched it last night, it's interesting and sets up a lot in the first episode. But you can also see that it's going to go to some dark places.
