Nathan Fielder Working on HBO Docuseries, Pilot After Signing Overall Deal
Comedian Nathan Fielder is bringing his talent to HBO.
The premium network has signed Fielder to a one-year overall deal, according to a new Variety report. So far, he's set to executive produce two HBO projects. One is the upcoming docuseries "How to...With John Wilson," and the other is an untitled comedy pilot that Field will write, direct, and star in.
Fielder confirmed there's "new stuff coming" in a tweet after the news broke. Unfortunately, he didn't spill any details about his pilot. Variety did report, though, that he'll executive produce it with Clark Reinking, one of his "Nathan for You" colleagues. Reinking was a supervising producer on the Comedy Central show, while Fielder wrote, directed, starred in, and executive produced it. For the HBO pilot, their fellow executive producers will be Rise Management's Christie Smith and Dan McManus.
In addition to "Nathan for You," Fielder has appeared on a variety of TV shows, including "Transparent," "Comedy Bang! Bang!," and "The League," among others. He also had roles in the films "The Disaster Artist" and "The Night Before." We can't wait to see the work that comes out of this new deal.
