Kidding is an American comedy-drama television series created by Dave Holstein that premiered in 2018, on Showtime. We worked on the second season which aired in March 2020. We really enjoyed working on this show – the bleak and dark humour takes you through the motions of pain and how to best perceive it. The script was so heartfelt and moving, and we couldn’t get enough of dimply Jeff (aka Mr Pickles) and his bobbed hair.

Available to stream the entire series on Showtime, here is the official Kidding synopsis
“Kidding” follows Jeff Pickles, a man who is iconic in children’s television. Jeff, aka Mr Pickles, is a pillar of kindness and wisdom to the impressionable minds of America’s youth and to the parents who grew up with him. When Mr Pickles’ family begins to implode, his life starts to take a downward spiral. He must put the fables and puppets aside to get through this newest crisis in life. As the slow leak of sanity advances faster than he can cope with it, the cruel world breaks his heart.
