It's been over twenty years since Jim Carrey starred in a regular TV series - but he's making up for lost time with his comeback.

'Kidding' is set to air on US network Showtime on September 9th and the latest trailer, which has just been released and follows on from the introductory trailer, looks absolutely bonkers.

The series sees Carrey play Jeff, aka 'Mr. Pickles', a "an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds, who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when Jeff's family begins to implode, he finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the 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."

Michel Gondry is involved as an executive producer - which explains some of the surreal visual style, at least - and Catherine Keener and Frank Langella also star.
