Comedian/actor Paul Reiser (Stranger Things 2, Red Oaks) and film & TV director David Gordon Green (Stronger, Red Oaks) are taking viewers behind the scenes of "The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson" with their new 1970s-era Hulu series "There's ... Johnny!"

Created by Reiser and written by David Steven Simon (Mad About You), the seven-episode streaming series is a fictional account of the inner workings of Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" as told through the eyes of a 19-year-old office assistant (played by newcomer Ian Nelson) who has just been hired to work on the show's writing staff.

With the approval of the Carson Estate, the series will feature Carson in rarely seen archival "Tonight Show" footage, meanwhile veteran TV actor Tony Danza (Taxi, Who's the Boss?) portrays Fred DeCordova, Carson's longtime executive producer.

Cast as a strong-minded and hard-working production manager, Jane Levy (from "Don't Breathe" and "Evil Dead") is taking on the female lead in the Hulu dramedy, in which David Gordon Green directs the opening episodes. Green also serves as one of the show's main executive producers.

Though originally set to premiere on the now-defunct Seeso Network, "There's ... Johnny!" is being released on Thursday, November 16th on Hulu. Watch the newly-released trailer, above.
