Steve Carell and prolific TV producer Bill Lawrence are teaming up for a new comedy series. HBO describes the show as a single-camera comedy set on a college campus, centering on an author’s complicated relationship with his daughter.

Eleven-time Emmy nominee Carell will star in the series, as well as executive produce. Emmy winner Lawrence will executive produce the series and will write the first episode with Matt Tarses. The currently untitled project received a 10-episode order from HBO.

“The combination of Steve Carell and Bill Lawrence promises to be full of great laughs, warmth, and charm. We’re thrilled to be the home for this long overdue collaboration,” said Amy Gravitt, EVP of HBO Comedy Programming.

Carell is known for his role as Michael Scott in the long-running NBC comedy The Office, as well as comedy films like The 40 Year Old Virgin and Anchorman. He also voices Gru in Illumination’s Despicable Me franchise, the fourth of which premieres this summer.

“HBO has long been a standard bearer of quality TV. Getting to do a show there with Steve Carell is an immediate career highlight for Matt and me. Nothing can go wrong now,” said Lawrence.

Lawrence’s award-winning TV career includes writing and producing shows like Ted Lasso, Shrinking, and Scrubs.

Additional executive producers for the upcoming comedy series include Jeff Ingold, and Liza Katzer of Doozer Productions. Doozer produces in association with Warner Bros. Television.
