Variety is reporting that Showtime is bringing Andrew Dice Clay back to TV with Dice, a six-episode, semi-autobiographical series set to air in 2016. The scripted series will revolve around Clay’s life in Las Vegas as he tries to reclaim his former glory as a standup comedian while juggling obligations to his family, his ex-wife and former fiancé.
Screenwriter Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II) is behind the project, serving as writer, director, and executive producer, with Clay also acting as an executive producer on the show along with Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, Richard Shepard and Bruce Rubenstein.
Clay is in the middle of a mild career resurgence of late, most recently starring in Woody Allen’s 2013 film Blue Jasmine and receiving critical acclaim. The aging actor also starred in the final season of HBO’s Entourage.
The show will begin filming in Las Vegas later this year.
Can’t wait til 2016 for more Dice? Well, tune in to Showtime’s comedy special, Andrew Dice Clay Presents: the Blue Show which is set to debut on the network April 25th.
