HBO fans of a certain age might remember Mr. Show With Bob and David, a sketch comedy series that aired in the mid to late 90s.
“Bob and David” are Bob Odenkirk, who shows his dramatic genius in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, and David Cross, of Arrested Development fame. These two coming back together in the name of sketch comedy is huge news for their fans, and Netflix has the series as an exclusive.
And they’re not just starring: Odenkirk and Cross are the writers and executive producers of With Bob and David, so we can expect to see their unique style stamped all over this project.
Netflix will be airing four thirty minute episodes, plus an hour long “making of” special. That’s not nearly enough for fans of the duo, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed for more!
No premiere date has been announced yet, so we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
