Paul created, executive produced, stars in and hosts the HBO Sports web series, “Got No Game with Paul Mecurio,” which recently premiered with weekly installments at www.HBO.com and www.paulmecurio.com. The series takes a satiric look at the world of sports through original sketches and one-on-one interviews and has been nominated for an Emmy Award.

Paul has three television shows in development. A sit-com starring Paul based on his unique journey from being a Wall Street lawyer and investment banker to comedian and actor. Lewis Black will co-star. Don Scardino, the famed director from “30 Rock,” will Direct and Executive Produce. Paul has a second show centered around his unique brand of stand up that involves the audience. The show, entitled, “Mob Rule w/Paul Mecurio” is a talk show hosted by Paul that gives a voice to the audience-the average American. Wayans Productions is attached to produce. Paul has also developed an adult animated show called, “Paul Mecurio’s The Disgraced Squad,” about a group of disgraced sports superstars who have been kicked out of sports and use the very powers that got them thrown out of sports to fight crime and do evil.
