Zach Galifianakis* plus Jason Schwartzman† plus, OK, Ted Danson‡... plus HBO original series, not irrelevant§...
...plus it's written and "created" by the amazing Jonathan Ames (writer of, among other things, the short piece "I Crap My Pants in the South of France")!
So, yes, I am excited about this upcoming television program. Honestly I've got to say I don't particularly have any guess as to whether it will actually be any good, though: sometimes exciting all-star collaborations result in crap. The Cusack–Leyner collaboration War, Inc.** was exciting to me in theory (a dark-comedic war satire written by Mark Leyner?—um, sign me up!), but it would be difficult to argue that it was particularly good or successful. I can easily see an Ames–Galifianakis pairing being just about the best or the worst thing ever.
WE SHALL SEE.
* No, I did not like The Hangover.
† Best when directed by Wes Anderson, it seems.
‡ Before your time.
§ The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Da Ali G Show, most recently True Blood... Flight of the Conchords is sometimes excellent, The Wire I understand is supposed to be the best TV show ever made, but I don't want to watch it...
** I'd been hearing about such a collaboration for years and years...I feel like there was some talk of an Et Tu, Babe movie with John Cusack attached way back in the mid-to-late '90s. John Cusack is cool.
