Netflix’s ‘W/ Bob and David’ Gets November Premiere in First Teaser
It’s been a good while since we’ve heard anything on Bob Odenkirk and David Cross’ Mr. Show follow up With Bob & David, but with Netflix finally coughing up premiere titles, we know when the pair reunite. W/ Bob & David will emerge from their withered hiatus this November, as confirmed by the first teaser.
Netflix confirms that the Better Call Saul and Arrested Development stars will reunite for their new sketch series (note the dropped Mr. Show) on November 13, appearing in four new episodes. Guest stars will include Paul F. Tompkins, Jill Talley, Jay Johnston, John Ennis, Brian Posehn and more, the latter of which appear in the above teaser.
Netflix previously greenlit four half-hour episodes and an hourlong making-of special for the new series, described in the below synopsis. Odenkirk and Cross also executive produce the new series, along with Marc Provissiero, Naomi Odenkirk, Tim Sarkes, Dave Kneebone, and the famous Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.:
After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEAL, Bob and David are back serving our country the way they do best: making sketch comedy. Four half-hours of brand-new comedy featuring all new characters, all new scenes and, most importantly, all new wigs.
Initially paired on The Ben Stiller Show, HBO’s Mr. Show with Bob and David ran from 1995 to 1998, and shot the pair to cult comedy stardom. For his part, Odenkirk shot in between hiatuses of Better Call Saul, which returns for a second season in 2016.
Check out the teaser above, and stay tuned for the return of Mr. Show, er … W/ Bob & David on November 13.
