The series will air as half hour comedies, with Eisenberg executive producing and directing the project, alongside Ravi Nandran and John Hodges, who will also serve as executive producers. The initial script for the series was written by Eisenberg as well, based on the series of stories he wrote from 2012-2013 for McSweeney’s.

Little more is currently known about the potential series, including whether it will be required to go through Amazon’s user voting system or if it will be ordered straight to series like Woody Allen’s upcoming project. The book series focuses on a 9-year-old restaurant critic, who dines at restaurants alongside his alcoholic mother and his best friend Matthew. There are currently 12 stories in the series
