Netflix Picks Up Bob Odenkirk and David Cross Sketch-Comedy Series

Series reunites duo from HBO's 'Mr. Show with Bob and David'

Netflix has ordered original sketch-comedy show “With Bob and David,” starring Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul,” “Breaking Bad”) and David Cross (“Arrested Development”) — reuniting the duo from HBO’s “Mr. Show With Bob and David” in the ’90s.

Netflix picked up four half-hour episodes and one hourlong “making-of” special from Odenkirk and Cross. Premiere date has not been set.

In “With Bob and David” — after the pair have been dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEALs — Bob and David are back serving the U.S. in the way they do best: making sketch comedy.

Odenkirk and Cross will write and star in the series, and also serve as exec producers along with Marc Provissiero, Naomi Odenkirk, Tim Sarkes, Dave Kneebone Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. Abso Lutely Productions is providing production services for the Netflix original series.
