Bob Balaban Stars in Above Average’s New Series, ‘Approach the Bench’


Above Average, the YouTube channel of Lorne Michaels’s production company Broadway Video, just debuted another new web series. Called Approach the Bench, it’s a courtroom comedy starring character actor Bob Balaban, a regular in Wes Anderson and Christopher Guest’s movies, as a judge. Approach the Bench was created and written by Daily Show writer Zhubin Parang, and this is the first of three episodes, which will hopefully all be about legal professionals obsessed with Danny Aiello.
