David Cross/Bob Odenkirk No Longer Doing That HBO Comedy :(

Back in March, word was David Cross and Bob Odenkirk had shot a sitcom pilot for HBO, and the network liked it enough to pick it up. Things were so good then, and the days with bright with comedic potential, but sadly it was not to be: Odenkirk has announced he and Cross decided to end the project. There isn't a left parenthesis curved enough to portray my sadness in emoticon format. But all is not lost. Thankfully, Odenkirk was good enough to post a clip from the series. In his words:

Here is a short bit of the pilot David and I shot for HBO a few months ago. HBO was AWESOME to let us shoot it, and we are the ones who nixed going forward with the show...however- -We all had such a good time that David and I are working on a new show that will let us kick ass. I put this video up because I think it kicks ass. I know you are missing story here...basically Zach Galifianakis plays an annoying old friend of David's who chances upon his house just when the house is being used to tape an episode of "Good Morning, Predator". Zach's character, LAME, has a shitty song he loves to sing to everyone and he does so here, completely oblivious to the fact that he is being labeled a predator. He's so happy to be on TV, that that is all that matters. It's a funny song, and cool video. Enjoy.

Here it is (and thanks for the "heads up," Tooom):

So, how long until we get the full pilot? That's what the internet is for: showing us things we aren't supposed to see.
