PAUL FEIG Working on Autobiographical Coming of Age Series

Director of Freaks & Geeks and Bridesmaids, Paul Feig is now talking about creating a new show based partially on his life.

In a recent stop at the WTF podcast with Marc Maron, the director said that he “really wants to tell the real story” of his childhood which he captures in his books Superstud and Kick Me. So we may have a new show soon looking at teenager Paul Feig.


In his chat with Maron he said “there is one TV series I want to do. It’s a very personal tale.” He then added, “To me it’s a coming of age, coming of middle age story about both my dad and myself and going between the two. It’s a lot of funny/awkward episodes.”

His earlier work Freaks & Geeks was largly influenced by Feig’s life, be apparently he has even more stories to tell. His two books are about his childhood as a Christian Scientist and his awkward phase as a young adult.

Lastly he talked a little about his feature career and a project falling through. He commented on the whole thing that, “I got a bunch of things in development. I had one thing that was gonna go and then we had a little trouble with one of the cast dropped out. They kinda fucked it.”
