Showtime’s Kidding Trailer: Jim Carrey Reteams with Michel Gondry

We’ve heard in the past that there may have been a strained working relationship between Jim Carrey and Michel Gondry on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (for example, in Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, Carrey claimed that Gondry was pleased that he was emotionally “broken” in real life because it would be good for the movie). The two have not worked together since then, but now they are reuniting for a Showtime original series called Kidding and it seems like it could be the most interesting thing either has done in quite a while. Created by Dave Holstein (Weeds, The Brink), the series stars Carrey as the host of a children’s TV show called Mr. Pickles who starts to lose his grip on reality when his family life disintegrates. Catherine Keener, Frank Langella and Judy Greer co-star and it looks like Gondry directed all 10 episodes himself. Kidding premieres on Showtime on September 9th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
