Adult Swim issues decree for Bob Odenkirk show

Adult Swim, the grown-up arm of Atlanta's Cartoon Network, has ordered a new live-action comedy pilot from Bob Odenkirk. Odenkirk may be best known for "Mr. Show," the ingenious, cult classic sketch comedy show created in partnership with David Cross. Previously for Adult Swim, Odenkirk served as a producer and comedic patron saint for Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim with their shows "Tom Goes to the Mayor" and "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" According to Deadline:


Adult Swim has ordered Regal Productions, a live-action comedy pilot created, directed, produced and starring Bob Odenkirk. Odenkirk developed the project with Brian Jarvis and Jim Freeman, who will co-star in the pilot with him. The comedy, executive produced by management/production company Odenkirk/Provissiero, revolves around Regal Productions, which, in a strip mall in North Hollywood, churns out wedding videos, Internet ads, low-budget infomercials and even feature films for “ancillary” markets.

If only Regal Productions were only in Albuquerque, it could be a strip mall neighbor to the law firm of Saul Goodman, Odenkirk's shyster lawyer/comic relief role on AMC's "Breaking Bad." Incidentally, there's no air date yet for "Breaking Bad's" fourth season, but in January star Bryan Cranston said it would return in July.
