Michael and Michael Have Issues will be a Comedy Central series

This is a big weekend for Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter. Not only are they celebrating a reunion with both The State and Stella this weekend at the SF Sketchfest, but they're also getting a new series together on Comedy Central. I'd heard rumblings that the pilot had gotten picked up earlier this week, today saw they had a MySpace (already 778 friends as I type this) and tonight, MIB himself confirmed that you'll be seeing Michael and Michael Have Issues on your basic cable TV eventually this summer. Congrats! As he wrote:

Michael and I are already hard at work thinking of ideas. The first idea we came up with: try to make a show that people want to watch. This is a radical departure for us, but after a long and successful career spent making television programs which the public says “no thank you” to, we’ve decided to go in the opposite direction.
