Nathan Fielder signs one year overall deal at HBO for two new series
Variety is reporting that Emmy nominee Nathan Fielder (Nathan For You, Who Is America?) has inked a one year overall deal at HBO, which includes the docuseries How To…With John Wilson, and an untitled comedy pilot starring, written, and directed by Fielder.
Executive produced by Fielder, How To…With John Wilson is a half-hour, first-person documentary series hosted by an anxious New Yorker (Wilson) who attempts to give everyday advice while dealing with his own personal issues. Acting as both cameraman and narrator, he covertly documents the lives of fellow New Yorkers in a comic odyssey of self-discovery, inevitably making the audience comfortable with the awkward contradictions of modern life.
Wilson, a lo-fi documentarian based in New York City, serves as the writer, director, narrator, and executive producer for the series. Wilson’s diaristic images of the city offer commentary on the anxieties and contradictions of modern life. Clark Reinking (Nathan For You) will also serve as executive producer.
Details on the untitled comedy series have not yet been released. Reinking will serve as executive producer along with Christie Smith and McManus for Rise Management.
