Michael Cera coming to CBS

Michael CeraApparently CBS isn't just screwing around with that Innertube thing on their website. The network has signed Michael Cera (Arrested Development) to do a scripted short-form series. The Good Life will be a mockumentary about two aspiring television producers who are convinced that their show is the next big thing. Unfortunately for them, it's not. Cera will be joined by Clark Duke, who you may remember from CSI, but I doubt it. He played Frat Boy #1 two years ago, if that helps. The pair will also both be in Judd Apatow's next film, Super Bad, next year.

This is a big step for the networks and new media. It's one thing to have a web only reality show, added bonus clips, or to burn off episodes of your failed series online. But it is an entirely different thing to hire known actors to create a series specifically for online distribution. Now let's see NBC answer by finally producing some more Nobody's Watching episodes.

Yay for Nobody's Watching! I wish they would bring that back, it's not like Paul Campbell is doing anything since Battlestar Galactica whacked Billy.
It's about time the networks start taking the web seriously as a place for their shows. It'll be really interesting to see how they play this.

This guy was a genius as George-Michael, although obviously the stellar writing and directing helped out. Glad to see he's getting work but I am PRAYING for Season 4 or Movie 1 in 2009.
