And now for a quick, but thorough, list of industry news headlines regarding the world of comedy. (with a bit of commentary thrown in if we feel like it)
–BBC and Jim Henson Co. team on new Muppets style program, ‘No Strings Attached’. “[insert any pilot picked up this year by U.S. network] got picked up instead of this?!?”-most people probably
–Daria will air again with an MTV retro hour. We only fear what will be on MTV when ’00 nostalgia takes over.
–Arsenio Hall returning to late night. He must have been watching Leno and thought, “I can definitely make a comeback.”
–Denis Leary cop comedy pilot gets greenlit by FX. Does this mean 7 or so years from now Denis Leary will be in a comedy pilot on FX about being in the Army?
–Chelsea Peretti officially leaving Parks and Recreation. Hopefully, this will mean she gets to make a web series based off her Instagram pranks.
