Aug 5, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Steve Carell, fresh off his successful run as the boss on NBC’s “The Office,” has his next project lined up — and this time it might include cuss words. That’s because the project is headed for pay cable, with Showtime giving it the green light, TVLine.com reports.

Also on board is veteran comedian David Steinberg, with Steinberg and Carell set to executive produce.

"Laughing Stock" is an interview series profiling the greats of comedy, past and present. Among the funny folk reportedly already on tap to be interviewed are Mel Brooks, Tina Fey and Jerry Seinfeld.

The plan is for 10 episodes, 30 minutes each, with a start date of early 2012.
