Zach Galifianakis might be going from “that guy with the beard who used to have a show on VH1” to “that guy with the beard who has a show on HBO.” The Hangover and HBO series “Bored to Death” standout has signed a deal with the premium cable channel for a “low budget comedy presentation” that was co-written-and-created by Galifianakis along with Mike Gibbons, and stars comedian Brody Stevens. The presentation, which might become a series, is “a mocumentary starring Stevens as himself, which chronicles one day in the life of the comedian,” which sounds a little like “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but there are worse things for a new show to sound like.
This isn’t the first time Zach Galifianakis and Brody Stevens have worked together – their relationship stretches back to the aforementioned VH1 show “Late World with Zach,” and Stevens has played small roles in The Hangover and Due Date.
Anyway, Galifianakis appears in the show as well, and will probably serve as a guest star if it gets picked up as a series. I hope it does, because this sounds really good. (via Deadline)
