Jim Carrey is returning to TV in Showtime comedy Kidding
Carrey is reuniting with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry for his first regular TV role since In Living Color. He’ll play a former child TV star named Mr. Pickles who, despite being the head of a multimillion-dollar empire, is facing a family crisis. Gondry will direct and Carrey’s I’m Dying Up Here executive producer Michael Aguilar will help produce the series, along with Jason Bateman. “No one inhabits a character like Jim Carrey, and this role – which is like watching Humpty Dumpty after the fall – is going to leave television audiences wondering how they went so long without him,” says Showtime boss David Nevins, who is promising a “magnetic, volcanic and emotional viewing experience.”
