Jim Carrey is "Mr. Pickles" in the new show from Showtime titled Kidding. Mr. Pickles - "Jeff" in ordinary life – is a children's TV star with a Mr. Rogers-like persona, and the face of a multi-million dollar brand, who's life starts spinning out of control in the rather surreal and frenetic trailer for the show, embedded below.

Kidding sees Carrey reuniting with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michael Gondry and co-stars Frank Langella, Judy Greer, and Catherine Keener. It also looks to be an interestingly dark, satirical counterpoint to films like Won't You Be My Neighbor?.

Catch the premiere of Kidding Sunday September 9 at 10 PM EST on Showtime and enjoy the trailer below.
