I’m assuming you clicked on the headline of this article, which is the same as assuming that you like things that are totally awesome.

Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (“The State,” “Reno 911,”) are set to write The Wee McGinty, which tells the story of a leprechaun who loses his memory and ends up living at a Chicago fire-station. When the rest of the leprechauns find out about their missing comrade, all hell breaks loose.

Aside from writing the bizarre script, Garant is set to direct the film, while Lennon will star in a supporting role. The news comes as the pair are putting the finishing touches on “Alabama,” a sci-fi comedy that will air on FX. (Deadline)

‘Reno 911!’ + ‘Battlestar Galactica’ = Thomas Lennon’s ‘Alabama’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/reno-911-battlestar-galactica-thomas-lennon%e2%80%99s-alabama/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/reno-911-battlestar-galactica-thomas-lennon%e2%80%99s-alabama/#comments Mon, 09 Aug 2010 08:50:11 +0000 Defy Media If you like sketch comedy and sci-fi, you were probably a virgin until at least your early 20's. But the enjoyment you'll get out of Thomas Lennon's new show "Alabama" will more than make up for all those lonely nights. Billed as a cross between "Reno 911!" and "Battlestar Galactica," the show, which is currently in development for FX, follows the exploits of the USS Alabama on its seven year intergalactic peacekeeping mission. It will take place one-thousand years in the future, and will feature sci-fi staples such as cyborgs, puppet-based aliens, and, of course, your occasional time paradox. "It’s Reno 911! with occasionally like we pass through a nebula that causes everyone on the ship to hear each other's thoughts.  Sometimes we run into ourselves as babies and then we have to keep the baby version of our-self alive so the future version of us can be there at the time.  You know, sci-fi problems. Reno 911!/sci-fi problems on a very, very sweaty, sweaty, clunky spaceship.” Filming of the pilot is slated to begin in late September (Collider)
