CBS Renews Digital Sitcom; Judy Greer Is Not Kidding, She Joins Jim Carrey Comedy

No Activity

CBS All Access, CBS' digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, announced the second season renewal of its first original comedy series, No Activity. The eight-episode first season of No Activity is currently available to stream on CBS All Access. No Activity is a comedy series from executive producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. In what should be a high-stakes sting operation, NO ACTIVITY celebrates the mundane. Set against the world of a major drug cartel bust, the series follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven't really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they've only just met.

The cast of No Activity's first season stars co-developer Patrick Brammall and Tim Meadows, along with guest stars Mark Berry, Arturo Castro, Mackenzie Davis, Bridget Everett, Will Ferrell, Darren Gilshenan, Travis Guba, Jake Johnson, Sunita Mani, Jason Mantzoukas, Adrian Martinez, Jesse Plemons, Fred Pohl, Alex Rodriguez, Amy Sedaris, J.K. Simmons, Courtenay Taylor, Michaela Watkins and Daniel Zolghadri.


Judy Greer

SHOWTIME has announced that Judy Greer (Married) has been cast as a series regular in the upcoming SHOWTIME half-hour comedy Kidding. Greer joins Golden Globe(R) winner Jim Carrey, in Carrey's first series regular role in more than two decades, along with Oscar(R), Emmy(R) and Golden Globe nominee Catherine Keener (Get Out) and Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon). Greer will play Jill, Jeff's estranged wife who has recently hit a rebellious streak. In Kidding, Carrey plays Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: A kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
