Pee Wee heads back to HBO in January

PeeWeeHerman HBO will air “The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway” in January, shortly after the close of his highly praised Broadway run.

The stage show is based on Herman’s original stage show as well as his Emmy-winning Saturday morning show, “Pee-wee’s Playhouse.” The broadcast will take place 30 years after the first HBO appearance by Herman (aka Paul Reubens), on its “Young Comedians” series.

Drew Powell, John Paragon, Jesse Garcia, Phil LaMarr, Lynne Marie Stewart, Lance Roberts and Josh Meyers appear on the Broadway show. Marty Callner, who directed Herman’s 1981 HBO special, is helming the 2011 broadcast, written by Reubens and Bill Steinkellner with additional material by Paragon.
