Los Angeles, Calif.-Audiences loved and laughed at the quirky tandem of Jon Heder and Will Ferrell back in the comedy “Blades of Glory”-and this time they’re going to be doing their funny tricks together on the small screen.
Jon will be starring in an upcoming sitcom for Comedy Central, which will be created by no less than Will, with the help of Chris Henchy and Adam McKay.
His role will be that of an unemployed IT worker who will be living with his family in his hometown-the picture of today’s American employee suffering from the effects of recession.
The series has no title yet, but for sure it will be featuring parodies of today’s trends, something common in Will, Adam and Chris’ first baby, FunnyOrDie.com, a website famous for its celebrity and other current events spoofs.
If the first 10 episodes of the series make a good mark, Comedy Central will be ordering 90 more eps, according to reports. Will may also do cameo appearances in the said show.
