The Mr. Show boys are back at it!
Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are making a sketch series for Netflix Deadline reports. A mysterious picture taken by Paul F. Tompkins featuring the likes of himself, Odenkirk, Cross, Brian Posehn, Scott Aukerman and others earlier this year made everyone feel the warm joy that we once felt with Mr. Show. The streaming service has ordered four half hour episodes of With Bob & Dave and an hour long "making of" special.
According to Deadline, the show sounds like an instant classic already: "After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEAL, Bob and David are back serving our country the way they do best: making sketch comedy."
Famous friends are most likely going to appear too. Odenkirk and Cross are set to write, star, and produce the series in conjunction with Marc Provissiero and Naomi Odenkirk of Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment, Tim Sarkes of Brillstein Entertainment Partners, Dave Kneebone, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. Did you read that correctly? Tim & Eric are along for the ride.
This Mr. Show spiritual successor should satiate our appetite.
