Between nailing roles as different neurotic or anxious people a few years ago, Jesse Eisenberg has been writing a short stories focused for McSweeney’s called Bream Gives Me The Hiccups: Restaurant Reviews From A Privileged Nine-Year-Old.

Eisenberg is now adapting these into a series for Amazon Studios. This adds to the big names that Amazon has been lining up on their development slate like Woody Allen.

It would seem that this is probably going to be live action, but it could work just as well animated. Either way, Amazon needs to get to its next cycle already.
