The Coen Brothers Are Making a TV Show


Fox is in the process of developing Harve Karbo, an hour-long comedy created and executive produced by the Coen brothers. Before everyone loses their minds: Joel and Ethan will not be writing the project's script — that responsibility has been assigned to co-creator and Cedar Rapids writer Phil Johnson (who will also executive produce, along with Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo). Still, exciting news! Reportedly, the show is about "a touchy Los Angeles private investigator — and his deadbeat friends in El Segundo — whose cases frequently force him to cross paths with a who’s who of Hollywood." So, be prepared for some Bored to Death comparisons, though we somehow feel that the similarities will be fairly incidental. [THR]
