The new comedy series starring Reiser (“Mad About You,” “Aliens”), will premiere on Thursday, 4/4 (8:30-9 p.m. ET). The show stars Reiser as — Paul Reiser. It’s been a few years since his hit TV series went off the air. Since then, he’s been enjoying the quiet life at home with his wife, Claire (Amy Landecker, “A Serious Man”), and kids and generally minding his own business, writing and producing television.
Getting him into trouble — and into adventures — are a group of new “friends,” most of which he didn’t choose since they’re the husbands of his wife’s friends and the dads of his kids’ classmates. Thrown together by circumstance, Reiser 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 pretty lame basketball team.
It’s co-executively produced by Reiser and writer/producer Jonathan Shapiro (“Life”) with 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.
