August 2, 2022 Andrew Buss News, Television
Nathan Min, best known for his work on Joe Pera Talks with You, will be creating, executive producing, and starring in a new pilot for Showtime.
The series, Mason, is a “surrealist comedy about a quiet man named Nathan, often misheard as Mason, seeking connection in a loud world. Based on the real-life experiences of comedian Nathan Min.”
“Nathan has brought SHOWTIME a disarmingly funny and emotional project that feels like a punch to the gut in how astutely it conveys the trials and tribulations of being a human today.” said Amy Israel, EVP of Original Programming, Global Scripted, Showtime Networks Inc.. “We can’t wait to see him team up with Daniels – who have emerged as a force with their incredible, mind-bending film that revolutionized what seemed possible on the screen – as well as the immensely multi-talented Steven Yeun and our friends at A24. MASON has every chance of emerging as a brilliant and cathartic comedy for our viewers.”
The show will also be produced by Steven Yuen and the Daniels team made up by Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, who will also direct. A24 will also be producing the pilot.
