Bridesmaids and Family Tree funnyman Chris O'Dowd has a hilarious new episode premiering exclusively Wednesday on Hulu, and the Irish comic says his coming-of-age series Moone Boy is mostly, but not completely, autobiographical. Watch an exclusive clip!
"I'm going to say it's 69 percent – always go for 69, it's the funniest number – it's 69 percent autobiographical," he explains. "I grew up on The Wonder Years and I loved that show. I feel like it's a similar kind of tone, but a little bit dirty. Like a dirty Wonder Years."
Produced, written by and starring O'Dowd, Moone Boy follows the slice-of-life adventures of 11-year-old Martin (newcomer David Rawle), the youngest child in the large, loud Moone family – and his imaginary friend, played by O'Dowd.
The first three episodes of the Hulu exclusive series Moone Boy are available now on Hulu, and the entire season is available on Hulu Plus.
