Nathan Fielder is giving fans their first look at his upcoming HBO series The Rehearsal with an all-new teaser.

The comedian is returning to TV with the half-hour series which according to him, is coming “very soon.” HBO has officially announced the series will arrive Friday, July 15 on the premium cable service and its streamer HBO Max. The teaser sees Fielder observing footage from several different cameras, one of which captures a woman who is trying to get a young child to go to sleep.

The Rehearsal which was ordered in 2021 follows Fielder as he attempts to give people the chance to rehearse moments for their own lives in a world where nothing works out as planned. Perhaps the teaser is giving a mother the chance to put her baby to sleep without any major hurdles?

With the help of a construction crew, a legion of actors, and seemingly unlimited resources, Fielder helps ordinary people prepare for some of life’s biggest moments through simulations of his design. A single misstep could shatter your entire world, and so this series asks the question, why leave life to chance?

Along with announcing a premiere date, HBO also released an intriguing piece of key art featuring Fielder as he sits down at a dinner table filled with a dummy family. “Why leave life to chance?” the tagline reads above Fielder’s head.

Fielder is best-known for his Comedy Central series Nathan For You, in which he used his business degree to try and help real small businesses in unusual ways ranging from creating viral video moments to coming up with unique promotions to draw attention. The show ran for four seasons from 2013 to 2017.

The Rehearsal certainly fits with Fielder’s style which has also been implemented in HBO’s docuseries How To…With John Wilson. Fielder serves as an executive producer on How To… With John Wilson and continues to collaborate with HBO after signing an overall deal with the premium cabler.

Along with The Rehearsal, Fielder is also attached to Showtime‘s The Curse, an upcoming scripted series about how a curse disturbs the relationship between a newlywed couple who are trying to conceive a child while also co-starring on a problematic new home improvement show. Emma Stone and Benny Safdie are also attached to the title.

Stay tuned for more on The Rehearsal as Fielder and HBO share updates about the upcoming comedy series.
