A pilot has been ordered by HBO and considering the names behind it, I can't imagine it not getting picked up. Even though this isn't as unusual as Will Smith funding a sitcom written by Irvine Welsh based on the life of Calvin Harris, it does seem odd that it is being developed for American television rather than Scottish or British. If picked up, I imagine Sky Atlantic's exclusive deal with HBO will have the Welsh penned sitcom airing in the UK soon after. Also, did you know Calvin Harris isn't his real name? The whole thing's given me a headache but I'm very intrigued to see how the show turns out.
This week a trailer surfaced for a porn parody of Seinfeld's interview with Sarah Silverman. Even with being one of the few who saw the original video (which has under 100,000 views on Youtube), I did not once think while watching it “This would make great porn.” The sort of SFW trailer Comedians In Cars Getting Sex! (not as clever as 'Wahlbergers', is it?) trailer can be found on Youtube and is arguably worth a watch just for the mediocre impressions and cringeworthy dialogue. I don't know how many people watch these porn parodies but this may be one of the only ones to be seen by more people than the source material. After this and the 30 Rock parody by the same director, the Tina Fey Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee parody is surely on the cards.
