'Kidding' Trailer, Premiere Date: Jim Carrey Showtime Comedy

Jim Carrey is one of the most polarizing comedic actors in Hollywood.

"Kidding" stars Carrey as Jeff, an icon of children's television under the name Mr. Pickles (think Mr. Rogers). But his success and his sanity are thrown into jeopardy when his family life begins to implode and Jeff discovers there's no fairytale or puppet to guide him through his personal crisis as he starts to lose his grip on reality.

(At least when compared to his recent Dumb and Dumber reunion on Conan and his controversial political paintings.) The performer's critical reception may soon change, however, because he has reunited with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry for a new Showtime series titled Kidding. The role marks the first time Carrey has been a series regular since his "In Living Color" days in the 1990s.

Carrey's joined by Frost/Nixon's Frank Langella as Jeff's executive producer, Seb, who can see the host starting tear town the empire they've built; Get Out's Catherine Keener as Deirdre, the head puppet maker (yikes, tbh); and Arrested Development's Judy Greer as Jeff's estranged wife.

"Kidding" consists of ten episodes and premieres on US TV on Showtime on September 9th. There is no news of the show coming to Irish telly just yet but we have our fingers crossed because it looks great.
