Rejoice: Nathan Fielder Is Coming To HBO - Mon 12 Aug 18:18 GMT

Today is a day for celebration.

  Ever since Nathan Fielder's Nathan For You ended its run on Comedy Central, we've been waiting with bated breath to see where he might pop up next.

  Bit parts in a few recent comedies were nice, to be sure, but they simply didn't scratch the same itch as Fielder's legendarily weird (and endlessly rewatchable) Comedy Central series.

  According to Variety, Fielder has just signed a one-year overall deal with HBO, one which will involve him executive producing a new series while writing, directing and starring in another.

  “How To…With John Wilson is a half-hour, first person documentary series hosted by an anxious New Yorker (Wilson) who attempts to give everyday advice while dealing with his own personal issues.

  All we know is that, again, Fielder will write, direct and star in the series.

  A scripted series with Fielder playing a fictional character, possibly also named Nathan?

  Stay tuned for more information on How To...With John Wilson and Fielder's other, as-yet-unnamed HBO series, as further updates roll in.
