Charlie's not involved in this, so don't get too excited, but Jim Carrey looks set to re-team with his Eternal Sunshine pal Michel Gondry for a Showtime series called Kidding.
Kidding stars Carrey as Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him – who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality’s family – wife, two sons, sister and father – begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the 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. (Source)
The series' creator is Dave Holstein (Weeds, Raising Hope), and Jason Bateman is one of the executive producers. Showtime has given it a straight-to-series order and Gondry will direct all 10 episodes.
