We finally know what that rumored "Mr. Show" reunion was all about.
"Mr. Show" creators and hosts Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are reuniting for "With Bob and David," a brand new sketch comedy show with Netflix, according to Deadline.com. The streaming service has reportedly ordered four half-hour episodes and an hour-long "making of" special.
Last December, Paul F. Tompkins stirred excitement among fans when he tweeted a photo of the "Mr. Show" gang hinting that something new was in the works for 2015. David Cross then teased the possibility even more when he mentioned a reunion for the '90s sketch comedy show on the Kickstarter for his directorial debut. Cross then confirmed the news of a "Mr. Show" reunion to The Huffington Post during an AOL Build interview.
According to Deadline.com, the new show will follow Odenkirk and Cross as two dishonorably discharged Navy SEALs who serve their "country the way they do best: making sketch comedy." The two will write, star in and executive produce the new show, which is expected to have all new characters. Representatives for Netflix were not immediately available for comment, Odenkirk seemed to confirm the news on Twitter when he retweeted Deadline's story on Thursday.
