With the pain of “Alvin and the Chipmunks” now subsiding, Jason Lee’s headed back to work. The former “My Name is Earl” star has sold a new live-action series to Adult Swim, that he’ll headline and write.

“Shredd: The Jon Johnsonsen Story”, written by Lee and Luke Watson and produced by Lee and Jack Black, ”centers on Jon Johnsonsen (Lee) who, as a 17-year-old superstar skateboarder in 1985 was on top of the world until a risky skate move landed him in a coma for 25 years. When he wakes up, he is 42 but stuck in the 1980s mindset of a teenage boy and must cope with all the changes in his life” says Deadline.

Lee will direct the 11-minute pilot.

The actor was last seen in Kevin Smith’s “Cop Out”.
