The Paul Reiser Show is an American television sitcom created by and starring Paul Reiser as a former television star who hasn't worked on a television series in several years and decides to shake up his life a bit, enlisting his friends to help him find the next "big thing" to occupy his time.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 14-21 April, 2011. Although seven episodes were made only two aired in the USA before the show was cancelled.

The Paul Reiser Show premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Tuesday 27 November 2012, at 19h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

The Paul Reiser Show is a single-camera comedy from Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated actor/writer/producer Paul Reiser (Mad About You) and writer/producer Jonathan Shapiro (Life).

The show stars Reiser as... Paul Reiser. It's been a few years since Paul's hit TV series went off the air. Since then, he's been enjoying the quiet life at home with his lovely wife, Claire (Amy Landecker) and kids, and generally minding his own business.

Lately, however, Paul has been thinking that it's time he did something new, something meaningful. But what that next thing might be, he has no idea.

In his quest to figure it out, Paul is both helped and hindered by his new "friends." Like most men his age, Paul didn't choose them. They're the husbands of his wife's friends, the dads of his kids' schoolmates.

Thrown together by circumstance, Paul and his cohorts, including Jonathan (Ben Shenkman), Habib (Omid Djalili), Fernando (Duane Martin) and Brad (Andrew Daly) form an unlikely comradeship - and a horrible basketball team.

The Paul Reiser Show is a production of Bonanza Productions Inc., in association with Nuance Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Reiser and Shapiro co-wrote the pilot as well as each of the episodes that follow, and both serve as executive producers.

Bryan Gordon (Curb Your Enthusiasm) directed the pilot.
