Jim Carrey to star in new Showtime comedy series titled “Kidding

Vastavam web: Jim Carrey is set to star in a new Showtime comedy series titled “Kidding”.The 55-year-old star will play Jeff, aka Mr Pickles, an icon of children’s television, who also anchors a multimillion dollar branding empire. But when his family 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.
“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.”With his ‘Eternal Sunshine’ partner Michel Gondry on board to direct, we are on our way to a magnetic, volcanic and emotional viewing experience,” Showtime president and CEO David Nevins said.
