Fred Savage is set to direct a new comedy series Garfunkel and Oates.

The former Wonder Years star will also produce the eight-episode comedy series for IFC.

The show fictionalizes the exploits of real-life comedy folk duo Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome, who perform under the name Garfunkel and Oates.

The duo have been performing live stand-up shows since 2007.

The new comedy series will premiere this summer on IFC.

Savage began his directing career in 1999, and has helmed many television episodes for shows such as Boy Meets World, That's So Raven and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

In 2007, he made his feature film directing debut with the film Daddy Day Camp.
