'Kidding:' Mr. Pickles, Puppets and Peak Michel Gondry - Creative Planet Network
Things fall apart in Jim Carrey's new Showtime series

Showtime's series Kidding follows Jeff—Mr. Pickles (Jim Carrey)—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. 

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. A kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity.

Created and executive produced by Dave Holstein, and executive produced and directed by Michel Gondry, Kidding premieres September 9. To view more videos from the show, click here.

"The search for who we are and what’s an authentic person have always been attractive themes for me," Carrey tells T.L. Stanley. "The idea of being hit by a freight train in life and trying to hold onto your identity calls to me."
