Last year brought some sad news for Nathan Fielder fans when Comedy Central confirmed that Nathan for You would not return for another season. Thankfully, however, the comedian has something new in store over at HBO. According to Variety, Fielder has signed a one-year overall deal at HBO, which will include a new half-hour documentary series he’ll produce as well as a comedy pilot he’ll star in.
The first project, titled How To … With John Wilson, will star New York-based documentarian and former private investigator John 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 is credited as writer, director, narrator, and executive producer on the project, and Fielder will also executive produce alongside Nathan for You alum Clark Reinking. Not a whole lot is known about the other comedy project yet, except Fielder is attached to write, direct, and star.
