Jerrod Carmichael Set Up Two Put Pilots at Fox Starring Lil’ Rel and Nate Bargatze
In the span of a few weeks, Jerrod Carmichael has three pilots being made for three different stand-up comedians from an overall deal he has at 20th Century Fox TV.
It was only a couple of weeks ago that a Hulu pilot for Muslim comedy with Ramy Youssef got ordered.
Just this afternoon, Fox announced two put pilots from Carmichael. One (via Variety) is starring and will be based on the life of comedian Nate Bargatze (Carmichael is attached to write and produce). The other (via Deadline) will star Lil’ Rel from The Carmichael Show and will be written and produced by Lil’ Rel, Josh Rabinowitz, and Kevin Barnett (Carmichael and Mike Scully are attached as EPs).
If all three go to series, Carmichael will be the latest stand-up comedian to become a legitimate TV power player.
“The Last Man on Earth” Renewed for Season 4
While Fox cancelled a lot of their freshman series, at least Will Forte will get to continue to dazzle us with various hair arrangements as Last Man on Earth just got picked up for a 4th season.
The occasional Bob’s Burger’s Live event is coming this summer to DTLA’s Orpheum Theatre. One date has already sold out and they have added a second date on June 18th that you’ll hopefully be able to snag tickets to. As the flyer says above, it’s got music, comedy, and a musical comedy revue (i.e. pretty much everything you’d want out of a live Bob’s Burgers event)
So, the tickets for the second date go on sale on this Friday, April 7th at 10AM PST. Mark the time, make a reminder, and make sure you got some coin to spend.
