Kidding was created by Dave Holstein, and stars Jim Carrey and Catherine Keener. Jason Bateman is an executive producer on the show. The series marks the second collaboration between director Michel Gondry, and Carrey, who worked together on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
In a recent interview with Vox.com, Gondry was asked how he got involved in the project. He explained, “I was asked. I think Jim wanted to work with me again, and I wanted to work with him again…We talked first on Skype, then we met, and we were both excited by all the possibilities that the show was offering: how his character would be complex, and how we could play with his acting and the duality between the happy Mr. Pickles and the tortured Jeff Piccirillo. I met Dave, and we immediately got along and started. It was very quick, very efficient.”
The half-hour comedy series follows Carrey’s Jeff, who’s known as Mr. Pickles on the daytime children’s television show he hosts. When his personal life begins to fall apart, Jeff finds that his work puppets can’t get him through the rough times. He must learn how to cope in these new and difficult circumstances.
