IFC Orders Pilots From Dan Harmon, Sara Schaefer, and Jim Norton
From Dan Harmon, IFC is ordering a pilot of a panel talk show where Harmon chats up famous historical figures played by comedians called Great Minds. From Sara Schaefer, they’re ordering a week-in-review show with predominantly female correspondents called 1320 Seconds. To round it off with a third, IFC is ordering a more traditional talk show pilot with Jim Norton as the host.
All three are different enough that we wouldn’t be surprised to see all of them get a short first season order.
Amazon Announces Next Round of Comedy Pilots Set for 2015
Yoga, former supermodel, guns, and middle-aged retirement are the subjects for Amazon’s latest comedy pilots, just announced this week.
Down Dog, Salem Rogers, Cocked, and Mad Dogs will be on Amazon for your to vote on in 2015. Names that might interest you in these pilots include Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Leslie Bibb, Steve Zahn, Sam Trammell, Paget Brewster, Andrea Savage, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Zane, Michael Imperioli, Brad Morris, Rachel Dratch, Scott Adsit, Romany Malco, and Jane Kaczmarek.
While there isn’t something perhaps as explicitly poignant as Transparent in this bunch, we’re still excited to see what Amazon has cooked up for this round.
