But maybe there is hot dog fingers? Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the duo behind Everything Everywhere All at one time, will work on something weird again. Showtime announced on August 1 that it has greenlit a surrealist comedy pilot made by A24 and directed by the Daniels, who’ll also executive produce alongside Steven Yeun. The half-hour project is named Mason, and its own in line with the real-life experiences of comedian and Joe Pera Talks with You writer Nathan Min, who’ll star and executive produce. Mason centers around a quiet man named Nathan, often misheard as Mason, who’s seeking connection in a loud world. Amy Israel, Showtimes executive vice president of scripted programming, described the pilot as a punch to the gut in how astutely it conveys the trials and tribulations to be a human today, and added that it has every potential for emerging as an excellent and cathartic comedy for the viewers. The news release remains very vague so far as plot specifics go, but weren’t too worried. In the end, Everything Everywhere All at one time finished up being about a bit more than an exhausted Chinese American woman struggling to complete her taxes.
