My Name is Earl creator working on new show

my name is earl greg garciaWere you charmed by the first sweet and funny season of My Name is Earl? Me too. And did you just about give up on the show after it eventually lost most of its charm and became a depressing, unfunny raunch fest? Me too. That's probably why I'm not too excited about Earl creator Greg Garcia's new show.

Fox just picked up Garcia's untitled single-camera comedy. The show will revolve around a young man raising an infant, the result of a one-night stand with a death row inmate, with the help of his dysfunctional family. Garcia tells Variety that his new characters will be "the same type of people" we saw in Earl and that they'll inhabit a world not unlike Earl's hometown of Camden.

Count me out if the show will rely on the same mean-spirited bathroom and gross out humor we saw in the last few seasons of Earl. Hopefully, Garcia will deliver something fun, fresh and clever instead of rehashing the same crude jokes and stories that got his old show cancelled.

I wish they picked up another one of his pilots from a couple years ago called "Fugly." I read the script and it was pretty good.

Plus Todd Holland co-exec'ed and directed the pilot, so it looked good, I'm sure..

How on earth can you have a one-night stand with someone on death row?

I was a fan of Earl before it went bad, but this doesn't sound great.
