You liked the groundbreaking Comedy Central series Strangers with Candy, right? Of course you did; you aren't a FOOL. That's why you'll be pleased as punch to hear that Strangers stars/writers Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello are working with 20th Century Fox and Worldwide Pants on a new television project. From THR:

One of the most sought-after comedians, Amy Sedaris, has inked a deal with 20th Century Fox TV to create, write and star in a comedy series project.

Sedaris will pen the script with her writing partner Paul Dinello, who also is attached to direct.

The single-camera project will be co-produced by David Letterman's Worldwide Pants, which has a first-look deal with Sedaris, a longtime friend of Letterman's and a frequent guest on his "Late Show" on CBS.

Sedaris and Dinello are "fleshing out" the premise for the show, which is based on an idea Sedaris came up with about six years ago.

Now who wants to see a compilation of all the Strangers with Candy end-of-episode dance sequences as a celebration?

God, I did too, but it turns out that doesn't exist on YouTube for some (probably legal) reason. The best I could do is this clip of Jellineck screaming a classic "goddammit" and this fan-fic that ends with a dance sequence. Sorry.
