The second season of “The Life and Times of Tim” will premiere on February 2. Fans can expect 10 new episodes of the endearing, yet little-discussed animated comedy.

In addition, cabler has given “Tim” an attractive Friday timeslot: At 10:30 p.m. immediately following the new half-hour animated series “The Ricky Gervais Show,” based on the comedian’s popular podcasts. Previously, “Tim” was paired with “Summer Heights High,” which lasted only one season.

Much like the cabler’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Tim’s” premise is that he finds himself in awkward situations and usually does an awful job of finding an easy way out.

Tim” was created by Steve Dildarian, who also exec produces along with Tom Werner, Jimmy Miller, Mike Clements and Leynete Cariapa. Media Rights Capital produces.

Nick Kroll is certainly busy, isn’t he? While contributing voice work to “Tim” and “Sit Down, Shut Up,” Kroll also co-stars in the hilarious comedy, “The League.”

“The Life and Times of Tim” is very similar to “Dr. Katz” and “Home Movies” in tone and humor. Much of the dialogue is improvised and and plots are simple, yet fun.
