"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" Writer Charlie Kaufman to Develop New Comedy For FX

"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" Writer Charlie Kaufman to Develop New Comedy For FX

Charlie Kaufman is known for writing carefully constructed dramas that really get you thinking about deep shit like the human condition and the meaning of life, so color us a little surprised by his next project: A half-hour comedy series for FX, called How and Why

The news was announced at the network upfronts today, according to Vulture. Kaufman will be writing, directing, and executive-producing the pilot, which will follow a man who knows more about nuclear reactors than about how to live life. Though, it's undeniably a departure from his regular fare that includes heartstring-tugging films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation, we've gotta say, it sounds quirky enough. Interest officially piqued.
