Jesse Eisenberg has teamed with J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Prods. for The Market, a half-hour single-camera comedy series project, which Eisenberg is writing and will be starring in and directing. Warner Bros. TV, where Bad Robot is based, is the studio.
The Market centers on the recently widowed Harold Katzman who moves to Pittsburgh to live with his adult son, Stan (Eisenberg). Both men simultaneously lose their jobs due to the changing American economy and are thrust into an unforgiving job market.
