Showtime’s Jim Carrey comedy Kidding will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Thursday November 29th at 10:40pm, it has been announced.
Kidding follows Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television and a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him. But when this beloved personality’s family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairytale, 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.
The comedy series was created by Dave Holstein and features Jim Carrey in his first regular television role in more than two decades. The cast also includes Frank Langella, Catherine Keener, Judy Greer, Cole Allen and Juliet Morris. Guest stars include Justin Kirk, Ginger Gonzaga and Tara Lipinski. Series creator Holstein serves as an executive producer alongside Michel Gondry, Jim Carrey, Michael Aguilar, Roberto Benabib, Raffi Adlan, Jason Bateman and Jim Garavente. Showtime has renewed the series for a second season.
