FOX has ordered 10 more episodes for their upcoming ensemble comedy, Mulaney. Starring comic John Mulaney, it started as an NBC project but they passed so FOX took it for redevelopment. Back in October, the network gave the show a straight-to-series order with a six episode commitment. Martin Short also stars.
Here’s some additional info from the network:
MULANEY – Universal Television, Broadway Video and 3 Arts Entertainment
· EP/Writer/Creator: John Mulaney (SNL)
· EPs: Lorne Michaels (SNL), David Miner (“30 Rock”), Dave Becky (“Louie”), Jon Pollack (“30 Rock”), Andrew Singer (“Portlandia,” “30 Rock”) and Andy Ackerman (“Seinfeld”) — Ackerman directed the pilot
· Description: A multi-camera ensemble comedy series about a rising stand-up comic trying to take his career to the next level and the friends and mentors who lift him up, hold him back and push him around.
No word on when the series will actually start airing but we should know more in the coming week.
What do you think? Does this show sound like a hit or a flop? Will you check it out?
Worst show I’ve seen in a long time. Yikes – brutal to watch
Can’t be good if NBC passed on this. Most of NBC comedies are pretty bad, so this one has to be horrendously bad.
Or NBC (who makes bad show decisions) passed because they wouldn’t know a good show if they got kicked in the face by one.
