Steve Carell Joins Hand With HBO And Bill Lawrence For Fresh Comedy Venture

Today has already been a significant day for Bill Lawrence, with Apple TV+ unveiling the initial glimpse of his newest Floridian comedy Bad Monkey, featuring Vince Vaughn as a somewhat discredited detective relegated to the position of a health inspector. HBO has now disclosed a new comedic collaboration from Lawrence and his Scrubs companion Matt Tarses (also known for his contributions to The Goldbergs and Sports Night) that will showcase Steve Carell.

The unnamed series is situated within a university setting and will present Carell, the former Uncle Vanya, as an author entangled in a “complex bond with his daughter” (is there any other kind?). The general premise somewhat resembles the late Lucky Hank, where Bob Odenkirk portrayed an author within a college environment grappling with a intricate relationship with his daughter (alongside nearly every Gen Z individual the show mistakenly identified as a millennial). However, that series predominantly focused on unfulfilled expectations and midlife challenges; the audience must anticipate whether Carell’s character will encounter his very own existential dilemma.

HBO has officially greenlit Lawrence’s latest comedy venture for a 10-episode run. The debut episode is scripted by Bill Lawrence and Matt Tarses, who serve as executive producers alongside Jeff Ingold and Liza Katzer of Doozer Productions in partnership with Warner Bros. Television (where both Doozer and Tarses operate under comprehensive agreements). Carell will contribute as a co-executive producer apart from his lead role. The Office alumni has another high-profile endeavor in progress; a reunion with Tina Fey for Netflix’s Four Seasons.
