LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Blades of Glory Stars” Jon Heder and Will Ferrell are teaming up again.
This time, however, it will be on the small screen.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jon will star in a sitcom for Comedy Central, written by Will, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy.
Jon will play a jobless IT worker who moves in with his parents and little brother, back in his hometown.
The currently untitled series won’t be the first time Will, Adam and Chris (husband of actress Brooke Shields), have worked together. The three men are also the founders of FunnyOrDie.com, the comedy Web site known for celebrity-starring parodies and spoofs.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, if the first 10 episodes of the series meet a ratings mark, Comedy Central will order 90 additional episodes.
Will may also make cameo appearances in the series, the mag reported.
