A&E has greenlit seven episodes of “Bob Saget’s Strange Days,” an hour-long series in which Saget will engage the odder fringes of American society.
The quirky travelogue will place Saget with groups that include biker gangs, Amish teenagers, mail-order brides and survivalist cults.
Series, announced to be in the pilot stage at the May upfronts, is positioned as a self-immersion extension of Saget’s standup act that riffs on offbeat people and their lifestyles while ultimately trying to illuminate what drives their emotions and behavior. [Variety]
It’s easy to dislike Saget, since it’s human nature to want everyone involved in “Full House” to die a fiery death. But the guy is actually a sharp and funny comic, with a penchant for filth that puts my porn collection to shame. If you’ve never seen his turn in The Aristocrats, please watch the video below.
