Adult Swim has posted the full pilot for Bob Odenkirk’s latest creation, Let’s Do This!, which stars Odenkirk as owner of a small-time movie studio that operates out of a strip mall in North Hollywood (which is a world away from the northern part of Hollywood).
In “Harry Podder and the Lost Lebaron,” Cal Goldberg (Odenkirk) deals with an African warlord, his ex-wife (Natasha Leggero), and his bumbling employees, who include Brian Posehn, Lauren Lapkus and Paul Rust.
A press release calls this a “solo” episode.
Maybe if you fall in love with it enough, it’ll be the one thing to convince Adult Swim to make this more than merely a one-time-only production.
Says Odenkirk: “I’ve always loved the hilarious Hollywood strivers reaching for their dreams, looking to triumph against all odds out here in the Hollywood ‘Dream Factory.’ In Mr. Show, Larry Sanders and other cult hit shows I’ve played many a funny sleazeball, I’ve impersonated the great Robert Evans, and it’s all been building to this. Cal MacKenzie-Goldberg and his come-from-behind underdog gang of sweet losers somehow find a way to succeed, even if they end up getting paid in yams.”
Let’s do this!
