I mean, c'mon, those lucky Brits have the world on a string -- awesome weather, those Jedward guys, and unsurpassed prevention of prostitute murder. Well, it was rumored before and now it's official. Beginning this fall, IFC will air David Cross's fish out of water comedy as well as two other very funny series. A TV version of The Onion News Network (Winter 2011) and the Kids in the Hall reunion series "Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town" (August 2010) have earned slots on the channel's schedule. Elsewhere, Comedy Central will be airing reruns of "Krod Mandoon" and "Naked Trucker & T-Bone's Show" ad nauseum. (Time)

David Cross’s UK Pilot Picked Up for Series and May Come Stateside http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-episode/david-crosss-uk-pilot-picked-up-for-series-and-may-come-stateside/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-episode/david-crosss-uk-pilot-picked-up-for-series-and-may-come-stateside/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The luck of the English continues. Not only do they have relaxed attitudes, non-questionable beef, and a perfect balance of fluoride in their drinking water, but now David Cross's UK comedy pilot is going to series on their Channel 4. The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret stars Cross as a schlub mistaken for an alpha-male who is shipped overseas by an egomaniacal boss in order to sell a sketchy energy drink. Will Arnett will play the boss in the six episode run. Other castmembers are Russell Tovey and Sharon Horgan. We may be in luck stateside as well. Not only will our steaks not kill the neurons in our brains, but /Film reports that negotiations are underway to bring the show to the U.S.. We've posted the hilarious intro from the pilot before but please revisit the LOLs after the jump... (via /Film)

Will Arnett & David Cross in ‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/will-arnett-david-cross-in-the-increasingly-poor-decisions-of-todd-margaret/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/will-arnett-david-cross-in-the-increasingly-poor-decisions-of-todd-margaret/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Those lucky bastards in the UK have it all. Fantastic cuisine, excellent dental care, reasonably-sized ears, Australian layabouts, and now David Cross's hilarious Channel 4 sitcom The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret. We've posted a clip (featuring Cross, Will Arnett, and Spike Jonze) below that sets up the premise of the series. Arnett plays an arrogant boss who spits out the grandest cuss-strings since Rip Torn. He mistakes Cross's Todd Margaret as a man of action and immediately trusts him to be his ambassador. Check out the NSFW clip:   Did you like it? Did you like the noodles line?? Yeah, thought you would. Want to see more? Well, if you live in the UK you can watch the entire episode at this link. Lucky limey bastards...
