Nathan Min (Joe Pera Talks To You) conceived the show and will also serve as an executive producer.

It is based on the real-life experiences of comedian Nathan Min.”
The Daniels (Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan), the duo behind Everything Everywhere All at Once, will direct and executive produce along with Oscar nominee Yeun.
The project is also produced by Jonathan Wang and Adam Kopp under Yeun’s production company, Universal Remote.
Amy Israel, EVP, Original Programming for Showtime said of the announcement:
“Nathan has brought SHOWTIME a disarmingly funny and emotional project that feels like a punch to the gut in how astutely it conveys the trials and tribulations of being a human today. We can’t wait to see him team up with Daniels – who have emerged as a force with their incredible, mind-bending film that revolutionized what seemed possible on the screen – as well as the immensely multi-talented Steven Yeun and our friends at A24. MASON has every chance of emerging as a brilliant and cathartic comedy for our viewers.”
