Fans of "Mr. Show" rejoice!
Deadline reports that the co-star of the cult HBO sketch comedy show (and some show called "Arrested Development"), David Cross, is developing a new series for rival premium network Showtime.
The still untitled series revolves around "a modestly successful travel writer who struggles to keep his families happy and satisfied. Oh, and also about finding out about each other's existence."
Reportedly, Cross would mainly take a behind the scenes role with the new series, serving as writer and producer under his Liberal Jew-Run Media Productions company alongside his manager Tim Sarkes. While the actor/writer will look elsewhere to fill the lead character's shoes, the door is open for him to come aboard in a smaller capacity in more of a supporting role.
Cross is perhaps best known for the aforementioned "Mr. Show" series, which he starred in and wrote for four seasons on HBO alongside frequent collaborator Bob Odenkirk. He most recently reprised his role as the world's first analrapist Dr. Tobias Funke in the long-anticipated "Arrested Development" Netflix return.
I've long been a fan of his work, from his stand-up specials to much of his film and television work (though his last creation "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" was somewhat lacking). However, as HBO's "Big Love" proved, there's nothing funnier than bigamy!
