Nathan Min & The Daniels Teaming for ‘Mason’ Series from Showtime & A24

Showtime is collaborating with fan-favorite production company A24 for Mason, a half-hour comedy series created, written, executive produced and starred in by comedian Nathan Min (Joe Pera Talks to You) and directed by The Daniels (Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan), whose film Everything Everywhere All At Once has become a beloved hit.

Based on his own life, Mason will lean into surrealist storytelling to chronicle the life of introvert Nathan – whose name is often misheard as Mason – as he seeks connections in this big, loud world. The Daniels will helm the pilot episode of the show and, if all goes well, Showtime will give Mason a series order.

The odds of that should be pretty good considering the talent involved – which also features Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead, Minari) as an executive producer – and the fact that Showtime and A24 have already found success with acclaimed talk/sketch comedy series ZIWE.

Amy Israel, EVP of Original Programming, Global Scripted at Showtime, said in a statement:

“Nathan has brought Showtime a disarmingly funny and emotional project that feels like a punch to the gut in how astutely it conveys the trials and tribulations of being a human today.

We can’t wait to see him team up with [The] Daniels – who have emerged as a force with their incredible, mind-bending film that revolutionized what seemed possible on the screen – as well as the immensely multi-talented Steven Yeun and our friends at A24. Mason has every chance of emerging as a brilliant and cathartic comedy for our viewers.”

With Everything Everywhere All At Once becoming the first A24 movie to top $100 million at the global box office, audiences will be very interested to see what The Daniels’ will do next, and Mason sounds similarly wacky and wild. We’ll wait for more information to arrive.
