HBO has ordered a comedy documentary series about Jerrod Carmichael’s life, which will follow his personal journey in search of love, sex, and connection. Carmichael will serve as an executive producer, along with Ari Katcher, who will also direct the series, and Eli Despres.

Per HBO, the comic documentary series will follow Jerrod’s “quest for love, sex, and connection,” chronicling his personal life through a series of encounters with friends, family, and strangers.

The project is a part of his two-year overall deal with HBO that he inked last year following the success of his Emmy-winning comedy special, Rothaniel.

“We’ve loved working with Jerrod over the past 10 years, and to watch him discover new layers of both himself and his comedy. Rothaniel resonated with audiences in such a profound way, and his honesty and vulnerability are a perfect fit for this original format,” said Nina Rosenstein, Executive Vice President, Programming for HBO.

The deal also includes a new comedy special, which will be his fourth at HBO. He got his start on HBO with two comedy specials in 2014 and 2017, respectively: Jerrod Carmichael: Love at the Store and Jerrod Carmichael: 8 in 2017.
