Finally, finally, finally, there’s something new from the brilliant, always-several-steps-ahead mind of Nathan Fielder coming our way.
This time, it’ll be a different sort of docu-series that seems somewhat adjacent to Nathan For You, but much more intensely personal, focused on life advice as opposed to business advice, and not starring Nathan Fielder. You can see as such in the premise for the series “How To…With John Wilson”:
Acting as both cameraman and narrator, he covertly documents the lives of fellow New Yorkers in a comic odyssey of self-discovery, inevitably making the audience comfortable with the awkward contradictions of modern life.
On top of all of that, Fielder signed up for a year overall deal at HBO and has scored a pilot which has details under wraps, but he will star, write and direct in. We are thrilled to see what Fielder will come up with under the banner of HBO especially as it seems that they’re really swinging for the fences with comedy and how weird and experimental it can be.
Hopefully, all of this comes out in time to make the 2020 election cycle a fraction more tolerable.
