Funnyman Bill Hader is going from network late-night TV to his very own cable series. Deadline reports that the 'SNL' alum has signed an exclusive development deal to create and star in his own comedy series for the premium cable channel.

There aren't many details beyond Hader's deal, so we don't know what the show will be about, or whether it will be a half-hour, hour-long or one of those limited series HBO loves so much ('True Detective,' anyone?), but it's pretty much assured that the show will be funny.
Hader, who performed and wrote for NBC's 'Saturday Night Live' for eight seasons and created such memorable characters as NY club scene expert Stefon and Italian talk show host Vinni Vedechi, has been busy since he left the sketch series last year.
On the TV front, he served as a full-time writer for 'South Park' this year, a show he's been consulting on for a few years now, and co-created the IFC comedy 'American Documentary' with Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers. On the movie end, Hader will next be seen in the indie drama 'The Skeleton Twins' alongside fellow 'SNL' alumna Kristen Wiig, and is currently filming Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck' opposite comedian Amy Schumer.
