Netflix orders sketch comedy series from Bob Odenkirk and David Cross

The Mr. Show duo is back

Netflix has grabbed a new comedy series from two big names: Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, the duo behind the classic HBO sketch series Mr. Show. They're beginning production on a Netflix series, titled With Bob and David, that'll include four half-hour episodes and an hourlong making-of special. The episodes will have the duo doing sketch comedy, entirely using new characters (presumably, that's because this is a Mr. Show reunion in spirit, not in name and rights). Along with a number of others, the comedy duo of Tim & Eric are listed as executive producers. There's no word yet on when the series is expected to premiere.

In addition to With Bob and David, Netflix also ordered today a supernatural drama called Montauk. It'll take place in the ’80s and involve a boy's disappearance and secret government experiments — the actual story is being kept pretty vague for now. Eight hourlong episodes are expected to premiere next year.
