NBC PRESS RELEASE: THE PAUL REISER SHOW series premiere on Thursday, April 14 (8:30-9 pm ET). “The Father’s Occupation” Paul (Reiser) stresses about what to put as his occupation on his son’s school form and his inconclusive answer motivates him to audition for producer Mark Burnett’s (NBC’s “The Voice,” “Survivor”) new game show against Larry David (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”). Meanwhile, Jonathan, Fernando and Brad get a little too caught up with their kids’ school projects. Omid Djalili and Amy Landecker also star. Directed by Bryan Gordon (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”). NBC’s “The Paul Reiser Show” is a new single-camera comedy from Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated actor/writer/producer Paul Reiser (“Mad About You”) and writer/producer Jonathan Shapiro (“Life”).
The show stars Reiser as…Paul Reiser. It’s been a few years since Paul’s hit TV series went off the air. Since then, he’s been enjoying the quiet life at home with his lovely wife, Claire (Amy Landecker, “A Serious Man”), and kids and generally minding his own business, writing and producing television but enjoying life out of the spotlight. Lately, however, Paul has been thinking that it’s time he did something new, something meaningful. But what that next thing might be, he has no idea. In his quest to figure it out, Paul is both helped and hindered by his new “friends.” Like most men his age, Paul didn’t choose them. They’re the husbands of his wife’s friends, the dads of his kids’ schoolmates. Thrown together by circumstance, Paul and his cohorts, including Jonathan (Ben Shenkman, “Angels in America”), Habib (Omid Djalili,“The Infidel”), Fernando (Duane Martin, “All of Us”) and Brad (Andrew Daly, “MADtv”) form an unlikely comradeship — and a horrible basketball team. “The Paul Reiser Show” is a production of Bonanza Productions Inc., in association with Nuance Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Reiser and Shapiro co-wrote the pilot as well as each of the episodes that follow and both serve as executive producers. Bryan Gordon (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) directed the pilot.
PAUL REISER took the time to chat with us about his new show, THE PAUL REISER SHOW, which is premiering on Thursday night at 8:30 EST only on NBC. I know I am excited to have Paul back starring in a weekly television series. Don’t miss the premiere of THE PAUL REISER SHOW on NBC.
