TV Land Decides That Jim Gaffigan Is Funny Enough For Them

That guy who you only know because of that "hot pockets" joke and not one of his many, many other funny things like his books is getting his own show on TV Land.

CBS was the first to get the option to pick up the show (twice piloted I might add) but they decided against it. Deadline reports that the cable network recently ordered 10-episodes of the program created by Gaffigan and Peter Tolan, which is now titled The Gaffigan Show. Another part of the deal is that sister network Comedy Central will air episodes one week after they air. The story derives from Gaffigan's real life.

We will follow a comedian who's live revolves around being a father, stand-up and very hungry. Returning original cast members include Ashley Williams who will play Jim's wife, Adam Goldberg who will be his best friend and Michael Ian Black who will portray his confidant. 

The Gaffigan Show is set for a 2015 premiere.
