Deadline Hollywood has the full slate of new shows and concepts that are being tested and developed for Comedy Central. There’s certainly a healthy amount of prospective new shows looking to wow the executives, and though only a few will ultimately find themselves getting a greenlight, only one really stands out at this moment.
That show is currently untitled, and it’s from a little comedy troupe known as Broken Lizard. The gang made swarms of fans with the release of 2001’s Super Troopers, which still to this day remains as quotable and hilarious as ever. After that, they went on to create films such as Club Dread, Beerfest, and the recently-released Slammin’ Salmon.
Click on over to the other side to check out the entire list of hopeful shows that Comedy Central will be looking at, including one with the hilarious Jon Benjamin and even Waiting the TV series?
Not much is known about the Broken Lizard show yet, but it’s described as being about “four minor-league umpires” and it will be written by members Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Erik Stolhankse, Paul Soter. No mention of Jay Chandrasekhar yet. On the Broken Lizard Facebook page, they also clarify that they’ll be playing these umpires as well, which is only right!
