Before we knew and loved him for the films Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Synecdoche, New York, Charlie Kaufman wrote for TV. Shows like Get a Life, The Dana Carvey Show and The Edge were among the efforts that had Kaufman’s unique voice on board. Now he’s returning to the small screen.
Kaufman is developing a sitcom for FX called How and Why, which is “about a man who can describe the ins and outs of a nuclear reactor but is clueless about life.” He’ll write and direct the pilot episode and executive produce the show going forward. The show doesn’t have a full order yet, just a pilot, but if Kaufman’s recent film work is any indication, there’s a good shot this show will fit right into FX’s current, quirky line up that includes American Horror Story, Louie and Wilfred.
