Los Angeles: Actor Jesse Eisenberg is all geared up to make his directorial debut with TV comedy titled 'Bream Gives Me Hiccups'.

The 32-year-old 'Social Network' star is creating, writing and directing the project based on his collection of stories of the same name, for Jax Media, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The show will star Parker Posey, Victor Rasuk and newcomer Elliott Smith.

Described as a bittersweet comedy, the story follows a quietly observant child, Oscar (Smith), as he copes with the dramatics of his recently divorced mother (Posey).

The project will start filming in New York from this month.
