NEW YORK, NY — IFC today announced that it has greenlit "Living with Yourself," a new scripted comedy series created, written and executive produced by Emmy and Peabody award-winner Tim Greenberg ("The Daily Show") and executive produced by Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern of Likely Story ("Sing Street," "Foxcatcher," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"). Jeff Blitz is attached to direct ("The Office," "Parks and Recreation," "Table 19") and will also serve as executive producer. IFC has ordered eight episodes of "Living with Yourself," expected to debut 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 When George undergoes a novel treatment to become a better person, he finds he's been replaced by a new and improved George - revealing that his own worst enemy is himself.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?



"'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 of IFC. "We are thrilled to be working with Tim Greenberg, who brought us 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."

"I'm doubly thrilled to be working with IFC on this show," said Greenberg. "Normally I'd make a joke out of a quote like this, but I'm too sincerely excited."
