A series from Hurwitz and Oswalt? Perhaps.
Most folks probably know comedian Patton Oswalt as Spence on the recently-departed King of Queens, but us comedy fans have known him for even longer as a very funny man who stands up and does comedy. He was the mastermind behind the Comedians of Comedy tour, and he's done voice work for a few Adult Swim series, including Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Also, he plays the lead role in the upcoming Pixar flick, Ratatouille.
Oswalt, in an interview with The Bastion, made a quick mention of a possible collaboration with Mitch Hurwitz, the man behind Arrested Development and the may-or-may-not-eventually-see-the-light-of-day comedy The Thick of It.
Now, this is Hollywoodland we're talking about, so Oswalt's comment really means nothing. Things change, deals fall through, and often the best ideas never come to fruition. Nevertheless, I know I'm not the only one who would love to see what these two fellas could come up with. Hell, fans of King of Queens would probably love to see Oswalt on TV again, and those of us who love him for his other work never get tired of seeing his cherubic face, either. I'd say there's no reason not to go ahead with whatever the hell idea these two are kicking around.
