FX has cast Michael Cera and John Hawkes to star in their Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) created comedy pilot How & Why. It seems like a team of people that would work incredibly well together.
The series will tell the story of "a man who can explain how and why a nuclear reactor works but is otherwise clueless about life." There aren't many more details on the series, buy Kaufman is set to write and direct the pilot. I've enjoyed Kaufman's work, and I'm sure this will be entertaining.
This is the first TV series that Kaufman has worked on since Fox's Ned & Stacey, which ended its two-season run in 1997. Some of his other TV credits include Get a Life, The Dana Carvey Show, and Adult Swim's stop-motion entry, Moral Orel.
