IFC Orders 8 Episodes of Comedy 'Living With Yourself'

IFC has ordered eight episodes of original scripted comedy series Living With Yourself created by Tim Greenberg (The Daily Show). The comedy is expected to debut on the cable network in 2018.

Living With Yourself is about George Elliot, a man who is burned out and facing an impasse in both his personal and professional life. When George undergoes a novel treatment to become a better person, he finds he's been replaced by a new and improved George - revealing that his own worst enemy is himself. Told from multiple perspectives with intersecting storylines, this fresh and inventive philosophical comedy asks: do we really want to be better?

Greenberg will serve as executive producer with Anthony Bregman, Jeff Stern and director Jeff Blitz. 

"Living With Yourself is a wonderfully unique, funny show that is both improbable and completely relatable at the same time, and it complements IFC's slate of slightly off comedies that are created by and feature some of the best comedic talent in the business," said Jennifer Caserta, President, IFC. "We are thrilled to be working with Tim Greenberg, who brought as a character in George Elliott that jumps off the page and then brilliantly duplicated that character so that we'd only have to hire one actor for both roles, the ultimate win-win."
