Actor Paul Reiser has inked a deal to publish Familyhood with Hyperion. The book will follow-up on his last two bestsellers, Couplehood and Babyhood.

Publication is set for May 2011, coinciding with the launch of his upcoming NBC sitcom, The Paul Reiser Show. Reiser’s sons are now 10 and 15-years-old, and the comedian will meditate on “parenting, marriage, and midlife.” Editor-in-Chief negotiated the deal Rob Weisbach at Rob Weisbach Creative Management represented the actor and Hyperion EIC Elisabeth Dyssegaard acquired the book. Executive editor Gretchen Young will edit.

Reiser had this statement: “After many years of trying to master the art of being a great husband and father, I’ve decided to write this book so my children will finally have all the proof they need that I have no idea what I’m doing.”
