‘Kidding’ Official Trailer: Jim Carrey Causes Mayhem and Has Puppet Sex in Michel Gondry’s Wild TV Series

TCA: The "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" collaborators reunite for a surreal look at one man's spiraling life.




Michel Gondry is unleashing Jim Carrey’s ultra-wild side in “Kidding,” the new comedy series premiering on Showtime this September. The series marks a reunion between the “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” collaborators and co-stars Frank Langella, Catherine Keener, and Judy Greer.

“Kidding” stars Carrey as Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television thanks to his “Mr. Rogers”-style television show and the head of a multimillion-dollar branding empire. Jeff’s family life implodes and he spirals out of control. The trailer provides a surreal and manic look at Jeff’s descent, which includes engaging in a sexual act with a puppet (which we can only hope is imagined).

“Kidding” premieres Sunday, September 9 at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime. Watch the official trailer below.
