Well, we finally have an answer to what Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, and the Mr. Show gang are up to! After teasing everyone with a Twitter group shot at the end of 2014, and Bob Odenkirk later confirming that while they weren’t resurrecting Mr. Show, it turns out they were working on some sort of new sketch-comedy project.
According to Variety, Netflix (it’s always Netflix!) has picked up four episodes of a half-hour sketch comedy series, With Bob and David, as well an an hour-long “making of” special. Here’s the plot description: “After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy Seals, Bob and David are back serving the U.S. in the way they do best: making sketch comedy.”
I wonder how they’ll format this. Will it be pseudo-reality with Odenkirk and Cross playing exaggerated versions of themselves with sketch comedy peppered in? Or will be some kind of mockumentary?
Either way, I’m sure whatever it is will be wonderful. The premiere date has not been announced yet, but you can expect With Bob and David sometime later this year.
