Gould creating zombie comedy for Comedy Central
Dana Gould, one of my favorite stand-up comedians, is creating a series about zombies for Comedy Central?
I am so there.
The series, which has the working title of The Last Larry, focuses on a world destroyed by zombies, and the humans leftover who are trying to get on with their lives. Gould describes the series as a traditional sitcom that just happens to take place in the aftermath of a zombie holocaust, saying it's really about how people get on with their lives after something terrible happens.
That may sound a lot like Shaun of the Dead, but Gould insists that's not the case. He is set to write, executive produce and star in the new series. Since the project is still in the early stages, there's no word on when we'll be seeing it.
Gould was recently a writer on The Simpsons, but left the series to develop other projects. He still does stand-up, and if you ever get a chance to see him, I highly recommend it.
