Joel and Ethan Coen, who are brilliant amazing creative geniuses and I hate you if you disagree, are teaming up with Fox to create their first TV show.
Fox has given a script plus penalty commitment to Harve Karbo, an hourlong single-camera comedy project co-created by the Oscar-winning brothers Joel and Ethan Coen and Cedar Rapids writer Phil Johnson.
The Imagine TV project, the brothers’ first foray into television, revolves around a touchy Los Angeles private investigator — and his deadbeat friends in El Segundo — whose cases frequently force him to cross paths with a who’s who of Hollywood. [THR]
“Harve Karbo” is my new favorite show and I love it. I just really hope that a pilot gets greenlit and the pilot gets picked up for series and that the series doesn’t get canceled after two weeks like “Lone Star.” The future show that hasn’t been filmed yet and only exists in my head is just too good for that to happen.
