'SNL' Vet Bill Hader to Develop and Star in HBO Comedy

EDIT

NBC

'SNL' alum Bill Hader may have popped up on the season finale this past weekend to help celebrate co-star Andy Samberg's hosting debut, but the "master of impressions" will soon book a much longer stay in returning to weekend TV. HBO officially commissioned Hader for his own comedy series, both to develop and star in for the future.

This early in the game, no one knows exactly what the two-time Emmy-nominated Hader will come up with for his own HBO series, though we at least know the 'SNL' vet will both create and star in the new show.

Previously, Hader served as a consulting writer for Comedy Central's 'South Park,' and guested on the likes of 'The Mindy Project,' Seth Meyers' Hulu cartoon 'The Awesomes' and 'Bob's Burgers.' Hader will next theatrically star in Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck.'

HBO's comedies have been on a role between 'Veep' and Mike Judge's 'Silicon Valley,' but what do you think? Is Bill Hader's brand of comedy a good addition to the network's lineup?
