Netflix has given the greenlight to With Bob And David, a new sketch show from Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, Fargo) and David Cross (Arrested Development, Dead Boss).
With Bob And David sees Bob Odenkirk and David Cross starring as two Navy SEALS who, after being dishonourably discharged from military service, are back serving their country “the way they do best – making sketch comedy”. Netflix said the show would feature “all new characters, all new scenes, and most importantly, all new wigs.”
In addition to creating and starring, Odenkirk and David Cross will also serve as an executive producers on the sketch series, which has received an order for four half-hour episodes and a sixty minute “making of” special. Marc Provissiero, Naomi Odenkirk, Tim Sarkes, Dave Kneebone Tim Heidecker, and Eric Wareheim will also executive produce.
The greenlight for With Bob And David comes mere hours after Netflix handed out an 8 episode straight-to-series order to Montauk, a 1980s supernatural crime drama from The Duffer Brothers and 21 Laps Entertainment. Like Montauk, With Bob And Dave is expected to premiere globally in 2016.
