Paul Reiser Kicks Off His Jam-Packed 2017 With 'There's... Johnny,' 'Stranger Things' & More

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the NY-bred and LA-based comedian, actor, television writer, author, and musician Paul Reiser. He will be making a number of appearances on screen, as well as lending his talents behind the camera.

Partnering with David Gordon Green ('Pineapple Express,' 'Prince Avalanche'), Reiser is currently producing "There's…. Johnny!" an eight episode series for Seeso scheduled to premiere in the fall. The series, which Reiser created with partner David Steven Simon, will intertwine authentic footage from 'The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson' with the coming-of-age story of Andy, a wide-eyed 19-year-old Nebraskan who stumbles into a job at the iconic show.

Reiser and Green worked together before, along with Steven Soderbergh, on the critically-acclaimed hit Amazon series 'Red Oaks.' Reiser's role as Doug Getty, the president of a New Jersey country club in a nostalgic 80's themed setting, was called "one of his absolute finest, not just of late, but of ever" (Decider) while columnist John Podhoretzt declared it was "among the most memorable in any show of the 'peak TV' age." The series has been renewed for its third and last season.

Additionally, Reiser has joined the cast of Netflix's 'Stranger Things' for the series' highly anticipated second season where he will play Dr. Owens, a high-ranking member of the Department of Energy.
